A 34-year-old man, Joseph Mukindi Njeru, on Thursday told an Embu Court in Kenya that he cannot do his digger job without smoking marijuana.

The accused denied intending to peddle the drugs, saying what was found on him was for his personal consumption only.

He stated that due to the nature of his work, which involves digging boreholes and toilets that sometimes go several feet below the ground, he smokes regularly to keep cool down the hole.

The magistrate directed Manyatta Police Station OCS to appear in court with a full report over the assault allegations.

The accused was released on bail.
