Two women were arrested by the police on Monday evening after they engage detectives in a Highway race challenge.
They were arrested for drug trafficking and a consignment of Marijuana that they were ferrying to Nairobi impounded.
Caroline Mariwa and Nancy Wangare were ferrying over 6 sacks packed with stones of bhang from Busia, headed to Nairobi when detectives finally caught up with them.
The product had been neatly arranged in a grey Toyota Wish, KBS 156S, being driven by one of the ladies.
Before their arrest, the duo had engaged Transnational & Organized Crimes (TOCU) detectives in a high-octane highway race, with the lady behind the steering exhibiting all signs of a Formula 1 finalist.
In a bid to evade Police roadblocks and deliver their supply successfully, the traffickers had taken the long Nakuru-Nyahururu-Nyeri-Murang’a highway.
However, detectives acting on information received intercepted the vehicle at Saba Saba, leading to the dramatic chase and arrest of the duo.
