Two suspected drug traffickers are being held at Nyali police station after being arrested on Tuesday in Mombasa in possession of approximately 3kgs of heroin.
At the time of their arrest, the suspects, identified as Fatuma Mohamed, 37, and Mosuo Bakari, 50, also had in their possession an undisclosed amount of money believed to be proceeds of drug trafficking.
Last month, Anti-Narcotic Detectives seized narcotic tacked in several books at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
According to police, the drug, suspected to be heroin, was on transit from Kigali, Rwanda to Guangzhou in China.
No one was arrested during the seizure of the drugs but police say the matter is under investigation.
