Kenyan youth has surrendered 20,000 rolls of bhang worth KSh 1 million in Kinangop, Nyandarua County, leaving many stunned at his decision to seek divine intervention by surrendering his trade.
According to a report from a local newsroom, Stephen Kamau, who previously made a living by selling marijuana rolls for KSh50 each, spoke in front of a congregation, announcing his intention to leave the illegal business, alongside seven of his colleagues.
Presidential candidate, Prof George Wajackoyah’s stand on legalizing Marijuana and view of it as a plant God made, is unlikely to read well with the repentant Kamau, who feels stained and deeply ashamed by his line of work.

“Today I return KSh20,000 rolls of bhang. I used to sell one roll at KSh50. It all comes to KSh1 million. I don’t care about the loss I have suffered by surrendering the bhang,” He said.
He now awaits God’s blessings for a better job on quitting;
“I am happy that I am changing to become a better person in the community. God will give us another decent job to do and survive.”
“I used to work with a team of seven, selling bhang across, but we have all decided to stop, and start afresh, I know God will come along for us,” he added.
They were applauded by the church and dedicated to the hands of God.
“I thank God for this young man who has come out of his own volition before this church to surrender this load of bhang,” said the pastor.
The news was highly appreciated by local parents, who rushed to witness the scene as many of the youths in the area were no longer living responsible lives as a result of drug abuse.
“This is very good news for us parents. He will no longer destroy lives of young people. This is big news for the community and the society,” said one parent.
