Police in Embu Friday burned seven bags of bhang worth over Sh.2million and destroyed 40 litres of ethanol that was used as exhibit in an Embu court, after the court ordered for its destruction.
They doused the 2, 000 stones of bhang with the ethanol, and set it on fire at Njukiiri show ground, about 10kilometres from Embu town, away from human habitation.
The bhang was transported in a police lorry from Embu police station under tight security before it was set on fire in an event that was witnessed by Embu West OCPD Francis Sang, Embu court Principal Magistrate Samuel Mutahi and other police officers.
The drugs were confiscated from two men in a vehicle from Embu town in February 2016, after a tip off. The court gave the order Thursday after sentencing the two suspects to five years in prison or a fine of Sh.3million each.
Sang said they were working closely with the courts and members of the public to eradicate drug menace in the county.
He called on members of the public to continue volunteering information about drug peddlers saying they will not disclose the source of their tipoffs.
