Police blamed for drug trafficking

27 June 2013, 14:49 Rodgers Buluma

At least 60 000 people are drug addicts in Mombasa and Malindi counties, a report tabled during the international anti-drugs day has confirmed.

A research done by NACADA showed that the most affected are heroin addicts since the drug is easily accessible in the coastal region.

Speaking during the celebrations in Mombasa, the NACADA director Sheikh Juma Ngao directed a blaming finger at the police saying that they have encouraged the use of the drug as well as drug trafficking in Mombasa County and the coastal region at large.

Sheikh Ngao said that the police are aware of the drug barons in Mombasa County but are ignoring their duty of arresting them making all campaigns against drug use fail.

The director called on all stakeholders in the fight against drugs to know that all their efforts had failed and that they should change the style of action if at all they wanted a progress in the struggle against drugs.

He said that for the fight against drugs to succeed, the police will be required to arrest all those involved in the drug trafficking business.

Sheikh Ngao said this in reflection to a statement that came out just a day before the celebration, linking drug traffickers with prominent people in Mombasa County.

This year’s anti-drug day celebrations came just a day after a woman was arrested in Mikindani, Mombasa in possession of several grams of cocaine which was intended to be sold in the active market of Mombasa.
