The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Parliament -

Po­lice in Nairobi are hunt­ing for a busi­ness­man in whose com­pound a stolen truck was found.

Head of Spe­cial Crimes Pre­ven­tion Unit Noah Ka­tumo said they have ob­tained an ar­rest war­rant for James Kioi, said to own a godown in Ruai, where the lorry was found.

The lorry was re­ported stolen while trans­port­ing ce­ment worth Sh135,000 to Nyan­darua last Fri­day. It was tracked to the com­pound a day later.

Ka­tumo said po­lice sealed off a sec­ond godown in Chokaa, also said to be owned by Kioi. De­tec­tives found a spir­its man­u­fac­tur­ing plant.

Three of Kioi’s work­ers were found in the two yards. Last evening, po­lice called in KRA of­fi­cers af­ter it emerged some of the brands man­u­fac­tured in the godown could be fake and un­reg­is­tered.
