Two companies associated with the Kenyatta family are among firms and individuals whose goods are set for auction at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) Customs bonded warehouse after failing to be cleared for months now.

Mediamax Ltd, which owns People Daily newspaper, a host of television and radio stations and Brookside Dairies, all which are tied to President Kenyatta have failed to collect their respective parcels sent from abroad.

Mediamax reportedly imported three Studio Mic Boom packages weighing 35 kilogrammes on February 21 and until today has failed to pick it up.

“Notice is given that unless the under-mentioned goods are entered and removed from the Customs Warehouse Keeper within thirty (30) days from the date of this notice, they will be sold by public auction on 22 October, 2018,” it said.
