Police seize 20kg narcotics at JKIA disguised as Kericho Gold tea

A multi-agency security team has this evening intercepted about 20 kilograms of unknown narcotic drugs at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

The drugs, suspected to be heroin were concealed as Kericho Gold tea.

They were found at the KLM Airside.

Police suspect that they were destined for Amsterdam aboard a KLM flight.

A source close to the Police revealed that one JKIA employee is being investigated in relation to the drug bust.

According to the source, the seizure was as a result of a fall out among members of the drug cartel.

It is believed that one of the members failed to load the narcotics on the intended flight.

In November last year, a number of the Airports staff were arrested in connection to drug trafficking.
