In a statement dated July 31, the embassy said, they had been informed by the National assembly that the container had arrived but it was empty.

"During the high-level parliament exchange this year, the Chinese side promised to donate some office equipment," the statement read in part.

"We were shocked to be notified by the National Assembly that when the container arrived in the Parliament and opened by officers, it was empty inside," it added.

DCI investigating the missing goods

National Assembly officers have reported the matter to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations who are currently probing the matter.

"We believe that the DCI will handle the matter and believe that with the professionalism of the DCI this matter will be resolved and equipment recovered," the Chinese embassy statement continued.

The embassy also noted that the goods were donated as a gesture of good friendship as they had also donated other items such a medical apparatus, food aid to the Kenyans side.

In the statement, the Chinese embassy assured Kenya that the nation will continue supporting them since nothing like this incident has ever transpired before.
