Rose Wanjiru Wambugu was found with 141 rolls of bhang valued at Sh2,820 five years ago.

A bond paper relating to a similar criminal matter was also found in her house at Kamuyu village in Kamakwa.

The prosecution case was premised on four key witnesses, including Wambugu's cousin, the late Githathi-ini assistant chief alongside his Kamakwa counterpart Lilian Kibira.
