A British national and two Kenyans have been arrested in connection with the seizure of cocaine worth over Sh300Million at the Port of Mombasa, that is said to have originated from South America.
The three are being interrogated by a joint team of US anti-drug agencies and Kenya anti-narcotic officers in Nairobi.
Highly placed sources indicate the three are linked to a drug smuggling cartel of the highly valued cocaine from Brazil and have been under surveillance by foreign and local anti-narcotic authorities for months.
They are being held in an undisclosed location in Nairobi, assisting officers in the investigation. They were arrested in a sting operation conducted on Saturday.
The officers’ intercepted the container upon arrival at the Port on Wednesday while on transit to Uganda, which was concealed as sugar from the Port of Brazil.
