Three arraigned in court for possessing bhang worth Shs. 223, 000 




Three  people among them two women on Tuesday appeared before a Kericho court charged with possessing and trafficking 1, 240 sticks of bhang valued at Shs.223, 000 along Kisumu-Kericho highway early this week.

Mary  Akinyi, Elen Atieno and Lukas Okumu Okwanya however, pleaded not guilty following which Senior Resident Magistrate (SRM), Bernard Rugut Kipyegon released them on a Shs.50, 000 bond and a surety of a similar amount each pending trial.

The trio was charged that on 17th, April 2017, they jointly transported the bhang using a Nissan vehicle registration number KCC 659G.

The prosecution told the court that the accused were arrested by police officers manning a road block at about 11.30am.

By press time, none of them had raised the bond. The case will be mentioned on May 5 and heard on June 22.
