Kebs boss arrested, hours after denying mercury in sugar

Who is telling the truth?

Ongwae and his team were arrested hours after they told parliament that the tests carried out on contraband sugar did not have mercury as claimed by Interior CS Fred Matiang'i.

They have since been taken to Nairobi area DCI offices for interrogation.

On Thursday, Ongwae told a parliamentary committee that the tests conducted by Kebs had showed no traces of mercury but established abnormally high levels of lead and copper.

Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti has sided with the Interior CS, anc asked Kenyans to dismiss the statement made by Mohammed.
