KRA, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) impounded the containers of contraband goods stored in freight stations in Mombasa.
The Daily Nation continued that on January 15, they impounded 39 containers of contraband Brazilian sugar declared as hardware material, whole lentils, photocopiers, office furniture, new shoes and dried grapes and stored stored at the Autoport, Focus and MCT freight stations in Mombasa after they were intercepted, while those containing ethanol were said to be within the port.
"The rice consignment consisted of cargo initially destined for Uganda but whose owners failed to claim," said KRA commissioner general John Njiraini.
Njiraini said it was not the subject of seizure as illicit cargo "hence no specific action has been preferred against the CFS facility where it was stored".
He said the Kenya Bureau of Standards had condemned the goods as unfit for consumption prior to customs auctions.
