The war on drugs in the country has been rife in the recent months with major crackdowns done in various parts of the country. Weed being the popular drug of choice among the youth has especially been the main drug nabbed during transit. Earlier on in the year bhang worth 4.5 Million was nabbed in Kahawa Sukari after police received a tip off from members of the public. But as much as the war on drugs has given police sleepless nights with them arresting those involved, the bigger cartel that is involved in the drug business still remain at large.
