Police impound consignment of rotting fish at Voi

28 March 2014, 11:30 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Police on Thursday morning nabbed a public service vehicle transporting 300 kilograms of decaying fish.

Police on patrol at Voi town had received a tip that a Mombasa Raha bus en route from Kisumu town had a stench in the goods on consignment.

The bus is believed to have stopped for the night at Voi town, Dr. Jonas Mwita, a sanitation officer who was contacted by the police revealed.

"The owner of the consignment vanished after the police took charge of the vehicle; police are tracing the owner for failing to comply with the meat control act," said Mwita.

He said the act requires that any meat being transported should meet the required standards  of hygiene and that stakeholders acquire permits from the inspection officers before transporting the meat to the market.

However, the driver of the bus, Joseph Chengo criticised the night travel ban saying it is the reason why perishable goods spoil before they could reach their targeted destination.

"We have been transporting such consignments for a while but such incidents are rare; the delays caused by night travel ban have resulted to such incidents," said Chengo.
