Police officers in Isiolo on Tuesday destroyed 150 Kilograms of Bhang estimated to worth 4.5 Million Kenya shillings.
The Bhang was part of the evidence nabbed three years ago but the case was only recently concluded and the suspect in whose possession it was found convicted and jailed for 15 years
The Bhang was set ablaze in a ceremony witnessed by Isiolo Law Courts Chief Magistrate Samuel Mungai, County Commissioner Herman Shambi, County Police Commander Joseph Kigen and officials from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
Shambi says the move to destroy the Bhang in full glare of cameras was aimed at silencing doubters who had alleged that the drugs would eventually find their way back to the hands of barons.
He assured members of the public that other consignments confiscated recently will also be destroyed in a similar manner once the ongoing court cases are concluded
