Kenyans Buying Themselves To An Early Grave By Purchasing The Following Fake Medicine

There are growing concerns that the Kenyan population is being endangered by a group of cartels behind a syndicate that risks throwing Public health into crisis by selling fake pharmaceutical products.

The crooks are minting money from their dealings with the Pharmacy and Poisons board calling on all Kenyans to be watchful anytime they are buying cough syrups and antibiotics, beauty products and contraceptives as the sale of the fake products has now become rampant.

Last week, the agency's inspectors impounded fake drugs which were approximately valued at Ksh 2 million sneaking their way into the country through the porous borders with people who were in possession of the luggage failing to explain the origin of the items.

Kenyans are however worried at how easily these drugs find their way into the market although there are the provisions of the Pharmacy and Poisons Board and now the risk most of them are staring at is untold.

Some dealers have also been in the spotlight marketing COVID-19 medication which further casts doubts on the safety of the common mwananchi who is prone to buying medicine from the local pharmacy.

Cartels and illegal importers have infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and are cheating the system and the government should now step in and save their citizens.
