Magistrate Kilungu Charles Mayamba and Mukaa Deputy County Commissioner Kaburu Kaimba presided over the destruction of the marijuana haul in an open field in Sultan Hamud township.

“We have destroyed 2,556 kilogrammes of bhang worth Sh76 million after the Kilungu Law Courts convicted those who were transporting the narcotic,” Kaburu said.
