Anti narcotic detectives arrest seven 'Drug Barons' in Mombasa

by Joy Nabukewa MOMBASA (Xinhua) -- Kenya’s anti narcotic detectives on Monday arrested seven wanted drug barons in the coastal county of Mombasa.

Regional police commander Larry Kieng said the officers also impounded seven vehicles hidden in a house in the Nyali suburb, recovered both local and U.S. currencies believed to proceeds of drug smuggling.

Kieng said police are still interrogating the suspects after court granted police five days to complete their investigation.

"The war on drugs must be sustained and we believe the seven are allegedly behind the drug trade in the country," Kieng said.

The government has recently intensified war on drug that led to seize of tones of narcotics and destruction of vessel caught smuggling the drug at high sea.

President Uhuru Kenyatta said they war on drugs must be fought and is urging for public and international support.
