(Daily Nation)Two Kenyans including Kilome MP Harun Mwau are among seven foreigners targeted by US President Barack Obama over narcotics.
President Obama has written to the US Congress informing it that the seven have been designated as foreign narcotics kingpins.
A second Kenyan, Naima Mohamed Nyakiniywa, is also on the list.
Others targeted are Manuel Torres Felix (Mexico), Gonzalo Inzunza Inzunza (Mexico), Haji Lal Jan Ishaqzai (Afghanistan), Kamchybek Asanbekovich Kolbayev (Kyrgyzstan) and Javier Antonio Calle Serna (Colombia).
In a report posted on the White House website, President Obama said: “…transmits my designations of the following seven foreign individuals as appropriate for sanctions under the Kingpin Act and reports my direction of sanctions against them under the Act.”
He took the action under powers conferred on him by the US Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act.
