Kenya has destroyed the 100 kilograms of Cocaine with a street value of Sh 598 million.

“If there is anyone who doubted our resolve to fight the trade of illicit drugs, today you have the answer,” said Fred Matiangi, Interior Ministry’s Cabinet Secretary who led security forces in the destruction exercise, “We are determined to fight the drug menace in our country decisively and conclusively.”

And he had a warning to criminals and (drug) traffickers, “If you are a drug trafficker, and you have been enjoying the protection in the past from within the security department, as the CS I want to assure you that that will never happen again because you are an enemy of our people.”


The Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji said  it is only through inter-agency cooperation and trust in government agencies that can make the war against drugs and other crimes successful.

“These drugs were intercepted due to cooperation, and the public needs to appreciate that even though we have our weaknesses we also have our strengths,” said Haji.
