The South Nyanza sugar company limited – Sony sugar? imported 50,500 metric tonnes of duty free brown sugar from Brazil on behalf of businessmen and was paid a paltry commission of ksh.82.7 million. The duty free sugar worth ksh.3.3 billion was shipped into the country by Holbud limited using the government miller’s import licence on behalf of six private companies. Members of the national assembly’s joint committee investigating the controversial sugar imports have accused the Sony sugar management and board of directors of colluding with sugar cartels to fleece taxpayers.
