Illegal goods worth Ksh.5M destroyed in Mandera

Security agents in Mandera have destroyed contraband goods worth over Ksh.5 million sneaked into Mandera town from Somalia by alleged unscrupulous business persons.

According to the Mandera County Commissioner Kutswa Olaka, the goods were destroyed by a multi- government agency  following a court order.

In the ruling, the court indicated that the goods did not meet the laid health standards by the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) and therefore should be destroyed.

The Commissioner who spoke at Qarbakole dumping site where the assorted goods were burnt said the government cannot compromise the health of its people by allowing non- inspected goods to be sold to its citizens.
