Police at Malaba station in Teso north sub county in Busia have intercepted 18kgs of bhang and 10 litres of changaa which was being sniffed to Kayole in Nairobi from Uganda.

Confirming the incident, OCPD Teso North Joseph Matiku said they were tipped off by the members of the public who looked suspicious and upon inspection three suspects were nabbed peddling the item to Nairobi using Eldoret shuttle Nissan.

The three, who were an elderly woman- the master-mine of the deal and 2 middle-aged men were found in possession of the substances and are now helping police with investigation.
