Diriye Abdullahi Mohamed supports ban of miraa (Khat)
MPs Mohamed Diriye (Wajir South) and Mohamed Shidiye (Lagdera) now want the government to follow in the footsteps of UK and ban both production and consumption of miraa in the country.
They said miraa is a drug and should be taken as such and a ban imposed on it.
“Miraa is in the league of cocaine and heroine and is a drug whose production and consumption should be banned in this country,” said Mr Mohamed Diriye
“This substance has no nutritional value and we commend the UK government for the decision they took to impose a ban on it,” he added.
The British Government imposed a ban on miraa two weeks ago much to the chagrin of leaders from Meru region where the stimulant is grown.
However, the two MPs urged miraa farmers to train their sights on other crops that have nutritional value saying they can never be any economic justification for the harmful effects of the stimulant.
