Court to visit firm whose di­rec­tors were charged with hav­ing un­cus­tomed goods

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nairobi -

A Nairobi court will to­mor­row visit a com­pany whose two di­rec­tors were charged with pos­sess­ing un­cus­tomed goods val­ued at more than Sh9.6 mil­lion.

Trial mag­is­trate Joyce Gan­dani of Mil­i­mani said the court will visit Pa­tiala Dis­tillers Kenya Limited in Em­bakasi, Nairobi, to ex­am­ine the prod­ucts kept in the firm. The de­ci­sion fol­lows an ap­pli­ca­tion by de­fence lawyer Ki­raithe Wan­dungi , who wanted the site vis­ited be­fore the De­cem­ber 15 hear­ing of the case.

Di­rec­tors Fran­cis Ki­ambi and Mary Waigwe Muthoni, are jointly charged that on Oc­to­ber 18 at Sal­ford Godowns in their firm, they were found in pos­ses­sion of 50 litres of ex­tra neu­tral spirit whose du­tiable value is Sh10,150,000.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the ac­cused used a ve­hi­cle, reg­is­tra­tion num­ber KBR 554H/ZD8522, a Mercedes Axor truck, to trans­port the goods.
