DCI GEORGE KINOTI says they will charge KEBS and KRA officials with murder for allowing Africa Spirits Limited to operate illegally

Monday February 11, 2019 - The Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti, has asked Kenyans to share information with the police about the whereabouts of Africa Spirits Limited owner, Humphrey Kariuki, who went into hiding after detectives raided his factory in Thika.

During the raid led by Kinoti and the Inspector of General of Police, Joseph Boinett, on Friday, detectives discovered 312,000 litres of illicit liquor and 21 million fake Kenya Revenue Authority stamps.

Humphrey Kariuki, who is the owner of the factory, escaped the police dragnet and the DCI boss says he has formed a special squad to hunt for this elusive criminal.

Kinoti also revealed that he has sent a team of forensic experts to the factory to establish the products that were made by the factory.

“We want to establish the exact components used in making the concentrates, their sources as well as quantities,” Mr Kinoti said.

“A report on how the plant has been supervised by relevant agencies for all those years must also be prepared.”

“State officials found to have taken part in this scheme will face many charges, possibly even murder.” Mr Kinoti added.

Sources said Kariuki used to bribe Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) and Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) officers who used to visit the factory every Monday and Friday.
