BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,13TH SEPT 2018-Four suspects linked to drug trafficking have been arrested at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) , two of the suspects, identified as Ms Mary Nyaguthie and Mr Bernard Otieno Oduor, had swallowed the drugs as they travelled on Tuesday.
After being put under observation, the detectives said, Ms Nyaguthie and Mr Oduor emitted 13 and 18 pellets, respectively, on Wednesday.
The officers added that the two suspects had swallowed the drugs with the aim of trafficking them.
Ms Judith Otieno Odote and Mr Boaz Ouma were also arrested after they were suspected of being Ms Nyaguthie’s and Mr Oduor’s escorts.
Police said the four will be arraigned on Friday once investigations are complete.
This comes just wees after interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i warned foreign drug dealers residing in Kenya that their days were numbered.
Speaking during a meeting with regional security heads at the School of Government in Kabete, last month Dr Matiang’i said the dealers were using Kenyan women and girls as mules.
DCI did not specify the kind of drug the detectives seized, only stating the narcotics were pellets.
