Directorate of Criminal Investigations detectives from the Transnational Organized Crime on Wednesday, 10th November arrested three suspects for trafficking narcotics in the guise of engaging in legitimate businesses.

Swalehe Yusuf Ahmed, Suleiman Salim Kaingu and Susan Mukonyo Mutuku were arrested in Kilifi’s Kikambala area.

While being arrested Ahmed and Kaingu were in possession of several packages of heroin, approximately 1Kg, estimated at over Ksh3 million in the prohibited markets.

Mutuku, a mobile money operator was arrested on suspicion that her shop was being used by the prime suspect to launder his drug trafficking proceeds.

Ahmed is notoriously known as a trafficker of the hard drug in the coastal region, having two related cases pending before the court, and has been carrying on with the illegal business while out on bond.

In the cases, Swalehe is accused of trafficking over 105Kg of Heroin estimated at Ksh 285 Million, money which he launders alongside various operatives that work for him.

The three were arraigned at a Mombasa court on miscellaneous application to facilitate completion of investigations, where a ruling on the same is set to be made today, 11th November.
