“He has not been arrested because he has not smoked in public or he is not in possession of the substance. He is only advocating for it to be legalized since at the moment it is not allowed in Kenya.

“Cannabis is mainly governed by the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (Control) Act No. 4 of 1994 which lists the illegalities relating to the drug,” stated Mabuka.

Constitution

According to the 1994 Act, it specified that an individual can be arrested and prosecuted for the manufacture, sale, giving, supplying, storing, administering, conveyance, delivery, or importation of bhang.

“A person guilty of an offence Sub Section 1 shall be liable in respect of cannabis, where the person satisfies the court that the cannabis was intended solelr hin consumption, to imprisonment for ten years and in every other case to imprisonment for twenty years,” reads part of the act.

Religious leaders take on bhang campaign

However, section of religious leaders condemn Wajackoya for trying to legalise bhang.
“As religious leaders, we would not like to see our people used as ladders by such leaders. We will ask the people to sideline and reject those politicians who are making pledges for legalisation of bhang,” said Sheikh Ambenje.

Consequently, Wajackoyah’s popularity continues to rise every single day as we are getting close to the campaigns.
