Area assistant chief Leah Nguhi confirmed the incident, indicating that the matter was reported by area residents. She further added that the suspect hid the bhang plantation by surrounding it with thorny bushes so as not to cause suspicion.

“Our children have lately been smoking a lot of bhang but we could not tell where exactly they get it from. But we got a tip-off from some herders who were in the area at the time,” said Nguhi.
