Bhang, 35L of chang’aa recovered from vehicle ferrying nuns

Security agencies have detained a vehicle loaded with 13 bales of bhang and 35 litres of Chang’aa after a high speed chase on Tuesday night.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation, the Marijuana that was carefully concealed in 13 bales was recovered from a vehicle that had travelled from Malaba.

The vehicle had carried four occupants, three of the passengers were were Catholic missionaries from the Benedictine sisters.

The visibly shaken nuns were however not connected to the consignment since they had boarded the vehicle as passengers, headed to a convent in Karen.

“Detectives from DCI Langata Division had earlier flagged down the vehicle along the southern Bypass, but the driver failed to stop prompting a high speed chase that left the three missionaries silently reciting their rosaries and mediating the sacred mysteries,” Said a statement from the DCI.

“Their prayers were finally answered when the Ill fated jalopy they were traveling in, failed to match the speed of the Subaru hatchback used by the detectives, forcing the driver to jump from the vehicle as they approached Kabage area and disappeared into darkness,” there statement added.

After a search was conducted in the vehicle, three jerricans containing 35 litres of locally distilled Chang’aa brew were recovered.

The sisters who were at at pains to distance themselves from the drugs explained to the detectives that they had earlier boarded the vehicle at Malaba on the Kenya-Uganda boarder, paid their fare and the driver was just about to drop them off in Karen, when the detectives flagged down the vehicle.

A man hunt for the suspect is still on going.
