The father and son of two men who allegedly stored marijuana at their home in Chokaa, Njiru Sub-county, Nairobi, and poured human excrement and cold water on two police officers have pleaded guilty to preventing the cops from capturing them.

After smearing feces on police officers on October 8, Erick Kimathi Jamal, 28, and his father, 57, were charged with impeding police officers from carrying out their duty.

Following the discovery of 280 grams of bhang with a street value of Sh8,400 in their home, they were also jointly charged with drug trafficking.

The two police officers were conducting a routine patrol when they learned that Jamal was operating a bhang business out of his residence.

They got to the residence and discovered Jamal dozing off next to two rolls of marijuana on the table. He was then taken into custody by them.

However, Mr. Kimathi barged into the residence and seized a police officer, causing him to open fire in the air to frighten the suspects.

The suspect fled during the uproar and returned with water and waste, which he then threw at the officers while encouraging bystanders to attack them.

After putting the suspects under control, the officers entered the home and discovered the marijuana under a bed. They then led the two suspects to the police station, where investigators from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Kayole offices took over the investigation.

When Jamal and his father appeared before Principal Magistrate Irene Gichobi of the Makadara Law Courts, they entered pleas of guilty to both charges.

The magistrate ordered their continued detention until October 24, when the prosecution will make its case against them and call exhibits, including the marijuana, before they are found guilty and given a punishment.
