Naivasha - Residents have been warned against buying products from long distance truck drivers along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.
Speaking in Naivasha town yesterday, Naivasha police boss, Charles Kortok, told the residents that they would be arrested if found buying products from the drivers.
He said that most drivers have been selling transit products meant for export, something he said is against the law.

“Most goods being transported by these trucks are meant for the export market and therefore it is a crime to engage in selling or buying such goods. If found both the seller and the buyer will face the law,” said Kortok.
The warning comes two days after a truck driver who was transporting alcohol, sold it to Maimahiu residents before feeling and abandoning the truck in the area.
Kortok said that they are still searching for the driver and called on residents to help the police with any information that would lead to his arrest.
“We are still looking for the truck driver who sold the alcohol he was transporting before he took off and we have already contacted the truck owner to help us with information that can lead to the arrest of the driver. We have not established why he decide to sell out the products,”
Police reports indicated that the beer was destined for western Kenya.
