A truck carrying uncustomed ethanol worth KES 15 million was seized by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) on Monday, resulting in a tax impact of KES 35 million.

The car was seized in Loitoktok’s Kimana neighborhood and is now being held at the Customs Border Office.

The KRA claims that this seizure is a component of their ongoing work to make sure that every Kenyan pays their fair amount of taxes.

The group underlined the value of paying taxes, claiming that they contribute to the nation’s growth and development.

Although KRA has not disclosed any additional details regarding the people or organizations engaged in this occurrence, it has assured the public that it will keep track of and enforce tax rules to ensure compliance.

During a routine search of the Emali-Loitoktok Road on December 24, 2022, detectives from the Emali Police Post in Kajiado County came across a consignment of 28,750 liters of suspected illegal ethanol being smuggled in a vehicle and disguised as animal fodder.

The vehicle was stopped, and the driver was taken into custody.

The incidents are as a result of the highly successful nationwide campaign against illegal items and tax evasion strategies.
