25 July 2013, 18:09
Nairobi - The proposed ban on miraa in the UK had been in the pipeline for a while now and is not a move against Kenya, British High Commissioner to Kenya Christian Turner said.
Turner took time to clarify that Kenya was among several other countries that will be affected by the ban, after meeting with stakeholders from Meru county, Capital News reports.
Turner went on to reiterate that his Government has had a long-standing intention to review the legal status of khat, although he understood the economic fallout of the move for Miraa farmers.
