Back to the sender! UHURU and his Government orders return of 40,000 tonnes of sugar back to Brazil - Did it contain mercury? LOOK

Sunday December 2, 2018 - The Government of President Uhuru Kenyatta has ordered 40,000 tonnes of sugar imported from Brazil to be shipped back due to quality concerns.

The large shipment, which was brought into the country by Darasa Limited, failed to meet quality specifications laid out by the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS).

A multi-agency team from Kenya Revenue Authority, Kenya Ports Authority, the Kenya Navy, National Intelligence Service, DCI Officers, and the National Police Service undertook a verification test on board the ship to ensure the cargo had not been tampered with before the Government ordered for it to be sent back to the country of origin.

The move raised more questions than answers, considering that importers are required to submit their products for testing even before being shipped.

This comes as the Government intensified efforts to rid the country of substandard and counterfeit goods.
