Agency seeks water tests after 7,800 crates of rotten eggs found in rivers

Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) officials are on the spot after thousands of rotten eggs were found dumped in rivers Olando and Koga in Homa Bay.

Homa Bay DCI officer Abed Kavoo said the eggs had been taken from the Homa Bay Police Station and handed to KRA officials in Mbita.

“We released the eggs a month ago to KRA. We are yet to know who and how the eggs were discarded in the river,” Kavoo said.

The 7,800 crates of eggs worth Sh2.7 million were confiscated while being transported in a lorry at Rodi Kopany market in late October. Police claimed the lorry owner had evaded tax.

Josiah Nyandoro, Homa Bay County Director of the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), said they had taken water samples from the two rivers to the government chemist for analysis.
