Two women have been arraigned in court today morning after they were impounded with a consignment of Marijuana that they were ferrying to Nairobi. The two are relatives and have been trafficking drugs for a while before they were apprehended.
Caroline Mariwa & Nancy Wangare were ferrying over 6 sacks packed with stones of bhang from Busia headed to Nairobi, when detectives finally caught up with them. The product had been neatly arranged in a grey Toyota Wish, KBS 156S, being driven by one of the ladies.
Prior to their arrest, the duo had engaged Transnational & Organized Crimes (TOCU) detectives in a high-octane highway race, with the lady behind the steering exhibiting all signs of a Formula 1 finalist. In a bid to evade Police roadblocks and deliver their supply successfully, the traffickers had taken the long Nakuru-Nyahururu-Nyeri-Murang’a highway.
However, detectives acting on information received intercepted the vehicle at Saba Saba, leading to the dramatic chase and arrest of the duo.
