The Kenya Revenue Authority's (KRA) Customs and Border Control Department will dispose of various imported products, including sex toys and fake male organs, from warehouses in Eldoret, Nakuru, Lodwar, Lokichoggio, and Suam on May 22.
This comes after KRA gave a 30-day deadline to the merchandise owners to recover the commodities via a gazette notification dated April 20, 2023.
"Notice is given that unless the under-mentioned goods are entered and removed from the custody of the Customs Warehouse Keeper within 30 days of this notice, they will be treated as abandoned and disposed of by destruction or otherwise disposed of in such manner as the Commissioner may direct on May 22, 2022," the notice states.
According to the taxman, a variety of alcoholic beverages, shisha items, bulbs, bed sheets, and plant seeds stored at the Eldoret warehouse would not be spared.
