Narok Senator Ledama Olekina has sensationally claimed that schools in tbe Kisii region performed well after their students smoked bhang.
In a Tweet on Saturday, January 21, the senator said that the region produces good bhang which resulted in their students scoring well in KCSE, which was released on Friday, January 20.
“I told you guys Marijuana is good stuff!!! Look at schools in Kisii All As in KCSE! It’s not a scam it’s knowing the good stuff,” Ledama wrote.
