“Two women have been arrested this evening for drug trafficking and a consignment of Marijuana that they were ferrying to Nairobi impounded. Caroline Mariwa & Nancy Wangare were ferrying over 6 sacks packed with stones of bhang from Busia, headed to Nairobi, when detectives finally caught up with them. The product had been neatly arranged in a grey Toyota Wish, KBS 156S, being driven by one of the ladies,” reads part of the statement from DCI.

Before the dramatic arrest, the duo had engaged Transnational and Organized Crimes (TOCU) detectives in a high-octane highway race.

“Prior to their arrest, the duo had engaged Transnational and Organized Crimes (TOCU) detectives in a high-octane highway race, with the lady behind the steering exhibiting all signs of a Formula 1 finalism,” the statement added.

While evading police roadblocks, the two women had used the Nakuru-Nyahururu-Nyeri-Murang’a highway, but unfortunately their vehicle was intercepted at Saba Saba area.

“In a bid to evade Police roadblocks and deliver their supply successfully, the traffickers had taken the long Nakuru-Nyahururu-Nyeri-Murang’a highway. The two will be arraigned in court on Tuesday, March 8, 2022. However, detectives acting on information received via our #FichuakwaDCI hotline intercepted the vehicle at Saba Saba, leading to the dramatic chase and arrest of the duo. They are currently being processed at DCI headquarters for arraignment in court tomorrow," DCI said.
