DCI busts bags of expired rice being sold in Nairobi

Brand of expired repackaged rice exposed

Bags of expired rice busted by DCI in Kariobangi

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Tuesday exposed a cartel in Nairobi that has been repackaging expired rice for sale.

The cartel that operates from Kariobangi had tonnes of the unsafe rice in a warehouse where they repacked it into bags bearing the brand name "Red Rose".

DCI boss George Kinoti told reporters that a number of suspects had been arrested during the raid while the owners of the go-down remained at large.

He added that the owners of the go-down had been identified as Kimende Stores but the owners were yet to be arrested.

DCI camping at Mombasa KRA offices

In a separate incident, a section of DCI officers camped at the Mombasa Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) offices on investigations over tax evasion.

The stand-off is said to have caused panic among the workers though police bosses insisted it was a routine check.
