A man in Nakuru County has shocked many people after he accused the police of uprooting his cannabis plant worth Ksh 15 Million without consultation.
The man who is planning to vie for MCA next year further claimed that the cannabis plants belonged to a CBO he was working for.
Police acting on a tip off, the police of destroying a Community Based Organization’s property.
“Sasa mumeharibu mali ya CBO, it’s quite unfair…” he told the police officers who were uprooting the illegal plant.
He further claimed that the police knew about the project.
“How comes, nyinyi hamjui… Why is this (police) post here? And it is informed about this project here,” he said.
The police further dared him to take a letter he claimed had authorized him to plant bhang to court.
He was arrested alongside his colleague and will be arraigned in court on Monday.
Bhang still remains an illegal drug in Kenya despite WHO’s decision to move it from the strictest Schedule 4 of the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs.
The move by WHO however did not in any way legalize the use of cannabis for recreational purposes.
The move simply meant that having the drug in both Schedule I and IV would allow states to use it for medical and scientific purposes.
