Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Thursday night arrested two female foreigners in possession of 148 kilograms of khat (miraa) at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
The two – Ahmed Hibak Nooradin and Mahmud Duniyo – had reportedly concealed the khat by wrapping it in maroon nylon paper bags inside their four large travelling bags.
According to the DCI, the suspects failed to declare to the authorities that they were in possession of khat and it was only discovered during screening as they were preparing to depart for Norway.
The duo is presently in lawful custody and will be arraigned in court and charged accordingly.
