Kisii Police Crack Down on Bhang Den, Arrest Two Suspects


In a major operation, the police in Kisii successfully raided a bhang den in the Masosa area, resulting in the recovery of illegal substances and the arrest of two suspects. The Kisii Central sub-county police chief, Amos Ambasa, stated that the seized drugs are estimated to be worth Sh60,000.

Chief Ambasa emphasized that the police will be ramping up their vigilance and conducting more raids in the future, as they work to eradicate this harmful vice, especially among the youth. He revealed that they have received intelligence indicating that the dealers are targeting students as they look to expand their market for the illegal substance.

This crackdown by the Kisii police marks a significant step in the fight against drug abuse, and the authorities have pledged to continue their efforts to stamp out the trade of illegal substances in the region. The success of this raid serves as a warning to those involved in the illegal drug trade, and the police will continue to pursue them relentlessly.

The Kisii community has welcomed the police’s efforts, and parents, teachers, and other stakeholders are urged to join hands in creating a safe and drug-free environment for the youth. The authorities are also asking for the public’s cooperation in providing them with any information that could assist in their efforts.
