The suspect was nabbed on Friday, while allegedly trying to sneak in a kilo of drugs, and was allegedly bringing it from Luanda in Angola, where she was travelling from.

She was detected by the Xray Scan at the customs, which led the customs officials into discovering the drugs hidden in her socks and underwear.

Thailand has been very stern in anti-drugs war, especially now that its borders are being used as the gateway to smuggle drugs into her neighbours like Myanmar.

From there, its taken to other destinations like Laos, Japan and Australia, which has made Thai authorities introduce the death penalty for those convicted of such crimes.

This is not the first incident involving a Kenyan and comes only months after another Kenyan was nabbed with 68 packets of cocaine.

Glenn Ooko was nabbed with 1.2kg of the drug, alongside Osita Joseph Ukpa, a Nigerian national, who is said to have hired him to smuggle the drug from Ethiopia.

This comes at a time when the world has declared war on drug trafficking, and months after Mombasa drug baron Baktash Akasha was jailed for 25 years by a New York court.
