DCI officers raid and shutdown alcohol distillery
The Directorate of Criminal Investigation raided and shut down an alcoholic drinks manufacturer based in Njiru Town on Monday morning, November 28, 2022.
According to a report by the DCI, the detectives raided Bongo Enterprises Ltd, in partnership with officers attached to the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).
Authorities seized over 5,000 stickers for an alcoholic drink identified as Bongo Vodka during an early morning raid led by detectives from the Economic and Commercial Crimes Unit.
The police also recovered hundreds of counterfeited KRA stamps.
“Today’s raid follows a recent directive by His Excellency President William Ruto to the police, to conduct intelligence-led operations targeting counterfeit goods, after it was discovered that crooked businessmen had devised ways of evading taxation” a statement by the DCI read.
The DCI officers have launched a man hunt for the holders of the alcohol plant along the Njiru - Mwiki road.
