Matiang'i deports 41 foreigners linked to contraband goods

Duale had earlier claimed he knew high placed individuals involved in contraband products.

Most of those facing deportation were picked up in from various estates within Nairobi County where they have been engaging in illegal trade.

Matiangi's action comes hours after Government spokesperson Eric Kiraithe warned politicians against fanning views that could jeopardise the ongoing war against contraband goods in the country.

This comes in the wake of claims by National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale that he knew the high placed individuals who have been in the business of contraband products.

The Garissa Town MP criticised Matiang'i's war on contraband, saying authorities were turning the blind eye on the "real culprits".

He claimed he had reliable information that the person behind the imports is also involved in the illegal logging that is wiping out forests.
