A Briton and a Kenyan were on Thursday charged separately with trafficking cocaine valued at Sh598 million.

Briton Jack Alexander Wolf Marrian and Kenyan Roy Francis Mwanthi allegedly trafficked the cocaine concealed in a container at Kilindini Port in Mombasa on July 29.

The prosecution said Mr Marrian is a director of Mshale Uganda Limited while Mr Mwanthi is a director of Inland Africa Logistics Limited.

The prosecution opposed Mr Marrian’s application for bond, saying he was a flight risk.

The illegal drugs were allegedly concealed as sugar from Brazil en route to Kampala.

Mr Marrian will be detained at the Kileleshwa Police Station until Monday, when the ruling on his application for bail will be issued.

Mr Mwanthi will also be detained at the Gigiri Police Station until Monday.
