Bold youth confronts Matiang’i’s officers – tells them only bhang can save Uhuru’s legacy

There was drama in Kiambu town after a young man in the area confronted senior security officers in the area – offering to secure President Uhuru Kenyatta’s legacy through cultivation of marijuana , popularly referred as bangi in Kenyan lingo.

The unidentified young man spoke just a few days after Interior CS Fred Matiang’I warned that he would not allow cultivation of marijuana – terming those behind the idea as lunatics.

However, the Kiambu young man told Matiang’I’s officers that after analyzing President Kenyatta’s government over the past six years, he was convinced that only mass cultivation of weed would secure the President’s legacy.

After looking at your ideas as the government, I am convinced that there is nothing that you guys are working on that will help the people and reduce the foreign debt. That’s why I am offering this idea of bhang cultivation. They will be farming through me so that their money is not stolen,” he said.

Kiambu Town MP Jude Njomo, who was present at the security meeting, appeared bemused by the young man’s courage and went on to probe about the potential of the new idea.

So you are saying this crop has a lot of money, where will we plant it and why not plan maize or beans?” Njomo asked.

I propose farming is done on government-owned land for easier control. It will be done for pharmaceutical use and exported to other countries and it will help reduce the debt. Other countries are doing it and they are benefiting a lot,” he added.

A security officer went on to ask the young man if he was involved in selling the herb – to which he answered in the negative – but clarified he often used the herb.
