Saturday, July 13, 2019-Controversial businesswoman, Joyce Akinyi and a Congolese man have been arrested in Nairobi West over suspected drug trafficking.

The two were arrested on Saturday afternoon and police seized 2Kgs of heroin with an estimated street value of Sh3 million.

This is the third time Akinyi has been arrested over suspected drug trafficking.

Akinyi, who came  into the limelight 8-years ago after a fight broke out between her and her then Nigerian husband Anthony Chinedu, was arrested in 2015 and three others with a suspicious powder but they were later released.

Chinedu was later deported over drug trafficking in June 2013.

 In 2013, Akinyi and Budalangi MP Raphael Wanjala were arrested by police at Isinya along Nairobi-Namanga highway over claims of drug trafficking.

 They were later released after they insisted they were carrying maize flour that they had imported from Tanzania.

Wanjala and Akinyi were detained in India in 2008 after authorities found them with undeclared Sh7.59 million.
