3 held over illegal alcohol with a street value of over 100 M Kenya Shillings

Nairobi Kenya: Police in Nairobi are holding 3 suspects after raiding a warehouse belonging to African Spirits  Ltd which is located in Thika Town.

The three who are senior officials of the company were arrested and goods worth millions confiscated during the raid. The DCI Kenya confirmed this via their official twitter page. The three suspects are: Kennedy Nganga Gitau aged 30 years, Shadrack Mutinda Muinde aged 26 years & Phrabhu Sethu aged 36 years.

 

 

The raid which happened on the 1st Feb 2019 confirms what the law enforcers have been suspecting. According to the reports, the Kenyan Police have been pursuing credible leads which the police says will help bring to an end a web of well connected individuals who are facilitating such illegal trade. The main motive behind such business is tax evasion which is a big menace in Kenya. Thousands of fake KRA stamps & several cartons of various brands of unaccustomed alcoholics spirits were confiscated.

 

According to the relevant authorities, corrupt officers from The Kenya Revenue Authority, Kenya Bureau Of Standards among other businessmen are all involved this illegal trade.

In the past years there has been an outcry from the members of the public due to the increase of substandard products flooding the market. These includes food, medicine, alcoholic drinks and even machines.

According to the law enforcers, the only legitimate players in the liquor industry are EABL, LDK and KWAL.
