Through their official Twitter handle, DCI shared a video showing the two men in question subjecting the small boy to weed smoking, an act that is against the law.
In their message, police expressed concern about the safety of the young boy who was being subjected to drugs at a very early stage.
“Can you identify these men? Do you know them? We’d like to speak to them in connection to this video that was brought to our attention-we’re extremely worried about the child. If you can recognise them or have any information that may further our investigations, kindly DM Us” reads a message for DCI.
In Kenya, Marijuana smoking is illegal and the law states that anyone found in possession or usage of the drug should be handed 20 years imprisonment contrary to Section 3 (1) and Section 3 (2) of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (Control) Act, Act No. 4 of 1994.
According to section 3 (2) of Act No. 4 of 1994 the offence (Marijuana possession or smoking) carries twenty (20) years imprisonment.
Cannabis ("bhang") was banned in Kenya during the British colonial East Africa Protectorate under the Opium Ordinance, effective 1 January 1914.
