How Nairobi man sold bhang to juveniles

A man has admitted to selling bhang to juveniles in Nairobi.

For his efforts, Robert Mwihia was sentenced to one-year in jail with an option of a Sh10,000 fine.

Mwihia was handed the penalties by Makadara Chief Magistrate Francis Kyambia after pleading guilty to charges of trafficking the bhang contrary to Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act of 1994.

Mwihia who was arrested on October 31st with the bhang at his house admitted that he was trafficking the bhang by way of storing 12 rolls of the narcotic drug worth Sh600 in his house.

He was to be handed an alternative charge of possession of the narcotics but the charges were dropped after he admitted the main charge.

The court heard that two police officers on foot patrol in the area received information from members of the public about a resident selling bhang to juveniles at his house.

The cops proceeded to Mwihia’s house where they conducted a search and recovered the bhang wrapped in a blue bag and kept under a table.

The officers arrested Mwihia and escorted him to Mowlem police station together with the bhang.

In mitigation, Mwihia pleaded for leniency claiming he has young children solely dependent on him.
