Detectives acting on information leads impounded a shipment of bogus alcoholic beverages with phony KRA stamps yesterday evening at a home residence in Ruai.
Following the ongoing operation on high-level tax evasion schemes by dealers dealing in alcoholic products, more than 200 boxes carrying thousands of bottles of fake spirits intended for the local market were found.
The fake beverages, whose consumer safety could not be determined right away, were packed in well-known local brand bottles, including Kane Extra, Trace Vodka, Konyagi, Blue Ice, Kibao Vodka, and Chrome Vodka, among others. An alcohol mixer and phony KRA stamps were also found.
During the operation, one suspect, Teresia Nyokabi Ngatia, was detained and is currently being processed for arraignment at the Kamulu police station.
