Kenyan drug suspect linked to Sh22 million heroine deported

The suspects Ndechumia Bilali Kimali at JKIA airport

Upon landing, Kenya Airports Authority’s CID Chief Joseph Mugwanja stated that Mr Kimali “is a dangerous drug trafficker”.

“Let it be known that criminals committing crime in Kenya and running to other countries will be pursued and brought back in the country to face law,” Mr Mugwanja was quoted by Capital FM.

In a statement, police said Mr Kimali is linked to the 7.6 kilogrammes of heroin that were blown up in the Indian Ocean on August 14, 2014.

“Our law enforcement agencies are in constant collaboration with other agencies outside Kenya to make sure that criminals will not have safe haven in their quest to commit crime in our country or elsewhere,” one of the police officers warned.

Mr Bilali is said to have escaped when other four suspects were arrested before the yatch was destroyed after government’s order.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery, Chief of Defence Forces General Samson Mwathethe, Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet and Kenya Navy Commander Major-General Levi Mghalu witnessed the destruction.
