The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has intensified raids and destruction of illegal liquor across the country.

In a raid conducted on Wednesday, KRA destroyed 120,000 bottles of liquor and 2,000 packets of cigarettes.

Commissioner for Domestic Taxes Benson Korongo (pictured) said the contraband was destroyed by KRA together with Kenya Bureau of Standards, Anti-Counterfeit Authority, National Police Service, National Environment Management Authority and National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse.

“As part of the enforcement, KRA seizes illicit products and prosecutes the offenders with the objective of attaining effective deterrence against the crimes,” said Mr Korongo.
