Police have found marijuana being grown commercially on high altitude slopes of Mount Kenya, national police spokesman Jaspher Ombati said yesterday.

“We have discovered several pockets of marijuana farms in forests along the higher slopes of the mountain,” Ombati told reporters, saying the fields were at an altitude of around 2,500m. “They are not easily accessible because of a thick forest cover and cruel mountain weather,” he said, explaining that attempts to raid the farms by helicopter on Monday failed because of thick clouds and heavy rains. Ombati said officers from the Kenya Wildlife Services and Anti-Narcotic Police Unit have sealed off the forest area where the farms are located.
