The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Ministries -

A man charged with hav­ing bhang told a court yes­ter­day po­lice of­fi­cers shot him in the waist dur­ing ar­rest. Zacharia Ndatu, 30, told chief mag­is­trate He­ston Nyaga he was shot by of­fi­cers on pa­trol while hav­ing re­fresh­ments with friends in Kay­ole. He is ac­cused of hav­ing eight rolls of Sh160 bhang, which was not in med­i­cal form. The pros­e­cu­tion said the of­fi­cers were trail­ing rob­bery sus­pects and as they shot at them, they ar­rested Ndatu, who had sur­ren­dered and was bleed­ing from a bul­let wound. The court heard they searched him and found the bhang. Ndatu de­nied the charges and pleaded with the court for le­nient bond terms. He was re­leased on Sh10,000 bail. The case will be men­tioned on Oc­to­ber 25.
