Police raid house used for manufacture of fake mineral water

18 July 2016, 17:46 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - Police have raided a residential house in Murang’a town where alleged packaging of illegal mineral water business was ongoing.

The police officers found sealed water bottles branded ‘Safya’ ready for dispatch.

The owner of the business identified as Mwai Muchiri, who was forced to open the two rooms located at the basement of a five-storey residential building, kept accusing the police of raiding his premise without a search warrant.

Muchiri reiterated that he has all documents to allow him package mineral water but failed to produce them at the time of raid and instead called his lawyer Margaret Nyangatia.

He was escorted to record statement at Murang’a Police station while arguing that he has been doing the business for the last one year and accusing his competitors for plotting the raid.

Lawyer Nyangatia said they will petition the raid before a court of law saying it was illegal for the police to impound someone’s business.

Murang’a North Sub-County Criminal Investigation Officer, Japheth Maingi who led the raid noted that the premise was filthy to process anything for human consumption.

Maingi noted that there was no water purification and distillation equipment, alleging the suspect was just filling the water bottles straight from the tap.

The only equipment that was found in the house was for sealing and putting stickers on the bottles.

Maingi said the suspect will be arraigned in court after investigations are complete.

Kenya Bureau of Standards (Kebs) had released a list of illegal bottled water in the country.
