The country-wide crackdown on contrabands and unscrupulous tax evasion schemes continued to record great success with the seizure of a consignment of 28750 liters suspected to be uncustomed ethanol.
Police from Email Police Post in Kajiado County said while they were on patrol duties along Emali-Loitoktok Road they intercepted the consignment on Friday.
The driver of the vehicle that was transporting the consignment disguised as animal feeds was arrested and the vehicle was detained.
Police said the driver said the owner of the chemical is a senior government official.
It is not clear whose the product is.
Police say there has been a rise in cases of transportation of ethanol in the country and cite political interference.
The chemical is used in making alcohol.
