Police unearth cartel of recruits who peddle bhang into police college

01 December 2015, 12:44 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Three police recruits have been arraigned in a Nyeri court for peddling bhang inside Kiganjo Police College.

John Mutie, Oscar Ahiro and Kelvin Obwongi were arrested at the highly guarded facility with eight rolls of bhang.

They are believed to be part of a cartel of workers in the College that supplies drugs to recruits.

They appeared before chief magistrate John Onyiengo, but did not take plea following prosecution’s request that they be held for one week to allow police to complete investigations.

“Apart from the eight rolls of bhang they were caught with, there are also allegations that there could be a weighty issue involving a cartel of others whom they could be working with to traffic bhang within and outside the college,” senior prosecution counsel, Allan Wanjohi told the court.

Police said the recruits were accessing the drugs through casual workers at the College.

It however emerged that the three recruits were in their final month of training and their courses will be terminated immediately.

The magistrate declined to grant police the one week period they had requested saying the reasons given were not valid.

He ordered police to complete their investigations by December 2, when the accused persons are set to reappear in court to take plea.
