Kenya ‘seizes illegally imported sugar’


Kenyan officials have confiscated 3,000 bags of what is suspected to be illegally imported sugar from a warehouse in Meru town in the east, local media reports.

The sugar, which was imported from Brazil, was being repackaged into bags to indicate it was sourced from Zambia, Meru County Commissioner Wilfred Nyagwanga was quoted as saying.

At least 13 workers, along with the manager of the warehouse, had been arrested, the Daily Nation newspaper reports.
