The National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (Nacada) has employed a multi-agency approach to curb influx of bhang from Ethiopia.

The strategy involves mapping out and sealing transit routes used by drug traffickers.

Nacada boss Victor Okioma, who held a meeting with Regional Commissioners from North Eastern, Central, Coast and Eastern in Meru, said they will involve locals in the exercise.

 National Government Administration Office said surveillance on the Moyale-Marsabit-Isiolo-Nairobi route had forced drug traffickers to opt for all weather roads.
