Reading Time: 1 minute

A consignment of counterfeit alcoholic drinks affixed with fake Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) stamps were impounded at a go-down at Khims Business Park, along the Athi-River outskirts of Nairobi.

Following the raid by a joint team of detectives and KRA officials, 16 individuals were also arrested at the premises.

Hundreds of cartons containing thousands of bottles of Blue Mountain Vodka destined for the local market were recovered following the ongoing operation on high-level tax evasion schemes by traders dealing in alcoholic and other related products.

Also recovered were over 4,500 litres of ethanol stored in drums, alcohol storage tanks, empty bottles and stickers, among other items related to manufacturing the alcoholic drink that is popular amongst the youths.

Meanwhile, detectives have launched a manhunt for one David Musila, believed to be the plant's owner.
