“An unlicensed alcohol manufacturing plant has been shut down in Njiru, Nairobi County, after DCI detectives & officials from the Kenya Revenue Authority raided Bongo enterprises LTD & uncovered hundreds of counterfeited KRA stamps.

During the early morning raid led by sleuths from the Economic and Commercial Crimes Unit, over 5,000 stickers of an alcoholic drink identified as Bongo Vodka were also seized, as detectives intensify a crackdown on counterfeit and illegal products that are finding their way to shelves in the local market.

Workers at the plant who seemed to have gotten wind of the detectives’ impending arrival fled the premises hurriedly, leaving the machines used in the manufacture of the highly potent liquor roaring with vigour.

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.” Said DCI

Detectives have already launched a manhunt of the owner of the plant who will be charged for various charges.

“Meanwhile, detectives are on the trail of the owners of the plant located along the Njiru – Mwiki road, who once arrested will be made to answer for their actions in strict conformity to the law.” Said DCI
