Former Kenya national football team player Jamal Mohammed has been handed a 15-month jail sentence in a drugs case.
This comes after Jamal pleaded guilty to two charges of being in possession of narcotic drugs as well as selling and promoting smoking of Shisha.
Jamal, an influential figure for Harambee Stars in his prime, will now serve the 1.3-year jail term or pay Sh60,000 in fines following the ruling made on Friday.
The former midfielder was charged that on November 3rd, 2018 at Berut area in Nairobi's Eastleigh Section III, he was found in possession of rolls of Cannabis Sativa (bhang).
In the second count, the 34-year-old footballer was charged with selling/promoting Shisha smoking contrary to section 169 of the public health Act.
Jamal, who was charged before Makadara Principal Magistrate Meresia Opondo, had initially denied the charges, but later pleaded guilty.
He has 14 days to appeal the sentence.
