Kenyan drug trafficker speaks after cocaine arrest in India worth millions

The identity of two Kenyan women apprehended by Indian authorities for drug trafficking can now be disclosed.

The women were found to possess a staggering 1.7 kilograms of cocaine valued at Sh510 million.

This operation, executed jointly by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) and New Delhi units, came to light on Tuesday, August 22, 2023.

The primary suspect, Bora Wanjiku, had flown from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Delhi Airport in India before her arrest upon arrival.

Acting on a tip-off, Indian authorities swiftly apprehended Ms Wanjiku, uncovering the contraband concealed within her trolley bag.

The DRI issued a statement confirming her arrest and detailing the circumstances of the seizure.

The interrogation of  Wanjiku revealed a more intricate web of criminal activity. Another Kenyan woman, Lucy Wanjiru, had arranged her air ticket, and it was through this connection that the authorities apprehended the second person of interest in the case.

Wanjiku, in her statement to Indian police, admitted her role as a drug courier and divulged that she had been tasked with delivering the illicit drugs.
