Parliamentary Committee probe presence of contraband of sugar in Kenya

27th June, 2018

Appearing before the joint team on Monday, Mr Kiunjuri said after the floodgates were opened for three months last year, records indicated that more than 370 traders imported one million tonnes of sugar, which surpassed the shortage estimated at that time to be 700,000 tonnes. National Treasury CS Henry Rotich differed with his counterpart on the quantity of sugar imported last year. He told the legislators that according to data obtained from the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), only 920,571 tonnes were imported during the period. This was a 100,000-tonne difference from Kiunjuri's figures.
