NAIROBI, KENYA: Police claim they have found bhang in an MP’s home.
By the time of going to press, Kitui Rural MP Charles Mutisya Nyamai had neither denied nor admitted that police uprooted bhang from his Kileleshwa home.
On November 19, police raided the home and uprooted five sacks of a “plant or weed” that “resembled” cannabis sativa, which was being grown at a garden.
A source who witnessed the operation insisted that the substance was bhang.
“It was taken to Kileleshwa Police Station. I am certain they want to hide the incident and destroy the evidence,” the man told The Nairobian.
The MP was not in the compound when the operation was conducted. An informer tipped off the police.
Kilimani OCPD Peter Katam said they are not sure whether the exhibit that was taken to the Government Chemist for testing is bhang.
“The plant is similar to bhang. The Government Chemist will tell us,” said the police boss.
When contacted for comment, the legislator wrote on SMS that he was not aware of the incident since he had been away.
He asked the writer to give him information about the alleged raid by police.
“I have been away and I am not aware of the incident. Who uprooted (bhang)?” he responded through a text message.
When given additional information he said: “ I will check with them and then revert back.”
