Msa kiosks closed for selling drug-infused sweets to students

12 May 2014, 11:41 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - Mombasa County Commissioner, Nelson Marwa has ordered the closure of all kiosks operating near learning institutions in Mombasa saying they are selling drugs to students.

The Commissioner said the Mombasa security department is investigating some kiosks at Mikindani area alleged to be selling a new product of sweets known as Quick Puff that contain hallucinatory substance.

"We got intelligence reports that there is a sweet known as Quick Puff which is being sold to Primary and Secondary school students. Security officers are investigating on the matter and we shall soon arrest those selling them. I have ordered immediate closure of all Kiosks situated near schools," said Marwa.

The move comes barely a week after police were tipped of some people circulating the sweets to students in Mikindani area Mombasa County.

Marwa, who was speaking in a meeting with education official at Mikindani Primary School on Friday evening called on the area residents to report any case to the police for the culprits to be arrested.

Mombasa County is listed among the counties most affected by drugs and substance abuse amongst the youth, a move that Marwa said should be acted upon effectively.
