According to media reports, the traveler was intercepted at JKIA after he was found in possession of a parcel with 2 million dollars in it. He was quickly ordered to reveal the source of the money as it was considered an act of money laundering.

He however managed to reveal the source of the money from Banque de Credit de Bujumbura (BCB) and was to be received by Global Services in Kenya.

The suspect who had now been cleared by Custom officers revealed a different document when he was being cleared by Swissport Cargo. A different document from that produced at the point of entry.

The news comes barely a month after a Bahrain national was intercepted with over Ksh 110 million in foreign currency at JKIA.
