Area AP commandant Francis Mwangi in a brief said they suspected the bhang originated from Tanzania as some of the packaging materials had labels indicating they were from the neighbouring country.

“We received a tip-off from the public and one volunteered to work with our officers and led them to a house suspected to be a store where the suspect stores bhang. We recovered three bags with other packaging materials which indicated the narcotic originated from Tanzania,” said Mr Mwangi.
