Mombasa Celebrates Muguka Ban Lift

Mombasa, Kenya – May 28, 2024 – There was a collective sigh of relief, and perhaps a celebratory chomp, echoing through the streets of Mombasa and Kilifi counties today. After a short-lived period of muguka mourning, the national government has stepped in, declaring the county-imposed bans on the herbaceous delight null and void.

Just a week ago, muguka users faced a future devoid of their leafy muse. The county governments, citing health concerns, had banished the plant, leaving many feeling like a deflated balloon. But fear not, fellow chewers! The herb, legally recognized as a crop by the national government, has been returned to its rightful place in social gatherings and pockets.

“It’s like the sun came back out,” exclaimed Mbaraka Omari, a local muguka enthusiast, a wide grin splitting his face. “Those days without it were dark times indeed. But hey, now we can celebrate with a chew!”

The national government’s intervention has been met with cheers (and maybe a few happy coughs) by muguka users. Social media has been flooded with jubilant reactions, with memes depicting ecstatic chewers and captions like “Back to business!” and “The comeback is real!”

While the debate over muguka’s health effects continues, one thing is certain: the muguka faithful are back in business, and the sound of contented chewing is once again a familiar tune in Mombasa and Kilifi. So, fire up the fires (responsibly, of course!), dust off your favorite chewing apparatus, and get ready to savor the return of the muguka magic!
