A bus driver made a dramatic stop at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu road after suspecting he was ferrying criminals.
According to DCI, drama started after the Busia bound driver picked two passengers at the Machakos country bus station at around 11 pm.
"As the bus was negotiating the globe cinema roundabout, the driver smelt an aroma of blazing cannabis sativa coming from the back of the bus. He switched on the lights only for his fears to be confirmed, when he saw a thin wisp of smoke straggling above the heads of passengers occupying the back seats, from the rear view mirror.
"Immediately, the driver who was intending to take Uhuru highway to Waiyaki Way detoured to Murang’a road and sped towards Kiambu road headed to DCI headquarters," DCI said.
DCI added," When the bus finally stopped, officers manning the majestic entrance to the Mazingira complex approached the bus to establish what was happening, only to learn from the driver that there were passengers who were smoking weed inside, in total disregard of the rest of the passengers including women and children.
"The detectives who were joined by the orderly officer and a standby team of elite undercover agents conducted a thorough body search on all the passengers who were in the Busia bound bus and found two suspects with the prohibited substance."
According to DCI, two suspects were nabbed and booked at DCI headquarters for being found in possession of narcotics after the search.
Kennedy Mekemi had concealed two rolls close to his privates while the second suspect Lenox Abuoga had concealed a half smoked joint inside a match box.
The rest of the passengers were allowed to continue with the rest of the journey.
