Three suspects handed 20-year jail term, fined Ksh.40M for trafficking 446kgs of bhang
The accused; Julius Nkolong Enkare, Adam Gituma Mugambi and Mohammed Jelly Adan, were convicted by Garissa Law Courts Chief Magistrate Cosmas Maundu who further slapped them with a fine of Kshs.40.14 million or a further 1-year imprisonment.
According to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP), only one of the suspects appeared in court on Tuesday with the other two absconding hearings after being released on cash bail.
A warrant of arrest has since been issued against the two whose sentence will be delivered upon their arrest.
"The Judgment was delivered in the absence of the second and third accused who absconded court after being released on cash bail," said ODPP in the Tuesday statement.
"The two have pending warrants of arrest and will begin their sentences once they are arrested."
