Security officers at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) have seized a consignment of miraa that was concealed in cartons of beans set for export.

The officers, acting on a tip off, intercepted a motor vehicle at the Airways Cargo Export section carrying 150 cartons labeled Fine Beans and Ravaya.

However, upon inspection, the officers established that the cartons contained French beans and egg plants at the top but had Khat (Miraa) concealed underneath.

Six suspects – namely Ahmed Habib, James Ngure, Duke Mutambo, Raphael Ngotho, Stephen Ngugi and Julius Mulwa – were arrested and are set to be arraigned in court.
