Powerful official fired over contraband goods

Industrialization CS Adan Mohammed has appointed Dr Moses Ikiara to replace Ongwae in an acting capacity for the next three months.

Ikiara has been serving as managing director at Kenya Investment Authority.

The suspects have faced charges that include attempted murder.

They are accused of clearing substandard fertiliser which was below the legal standards and allegedly contained mercury.

KEBS officials, however, have been freed on a Sh5 million bond with a surety of a similar amount.
