Heroin Worth Sh24.9b Off Kenyan Coast Seized by Australian Navy

Heroin valued at $290 million was seized by Australian Navy off the coast of Kenya by Australian Navy vessel HMAS Darwin.

The crew of HMAS Darwin deployed on Operation Slipper went in a wooden boat sailing east of Kenya and found 46 sacks of heroin.

The cache of drugs was hidden among bags of cement and could have been on transit to Somalia to fund terror activities.

Funding of terror activities in Somalia has been facilitated by some unknown individuals in Kenya.

The drugs were in a wooden dhow off the coast of Kenya meaning they came from Kenya.

This shows drug lords in Kenya are still successfully going on with their businesses.

HMAS Darwin has the 1 tonne of heroin in its custody and will be destroyed.
