The of­fi­cer in charge of the Kenya Anti-Nar­cotics Unit, Hamisi Masa, told a Kib­era court yes­ter­day they were act­ing on in­tel­li­gence re­ports when they seized the con­tainer that con­tained 99kg of co­caine worth more than Sh500,000. He was tes­ti­fy­ing in a case in which Bri­ton Jack Wolf has been charged along­side Fran­cis Mwan­thi with jointly traf­fick­ing the co­caine. The court heard that af­ter Masa got the in­tel­li­gence re­ports, he sent his of­fi­cers to the Mom­basa port. Af­ter they seized the con­tainer, he per­son­ally went to Mom­basa and saw the drugs. Masa told the court he trav­elled to the Cast on July 29 with gov­ern­ment an­a­lyst Den­nis Onyango and he was shown seven bags with the co­caine. The bags had been marked and had 90 slabs, each weigh­ing 1.1kg.
