A Kenya Defence Forces officer in the rank of a Major, Peter Muriithi, was on Sunday, March 22, arrested transporting rolls of bhang stuffed in his Toyota Prado car.

In the 5:40 am incident, Muriithi was busted with the rolls of bhang alongside his junior identified as Corporal Martin Munene driving to an unspecified location.


Muriithi based at Bothay and his junior were apprehended after officers from the multi-agency team in Moyale, Marsabit County stopped them at a roadblock.

The officers quickly checked the vehicle where they found “a huge consignment of bhang’. The two were then whisked to unspecified police custody waiting for directives from police and the military.
