The Assets and Recovery Authority has been at the forefront of ensuring that Kenyans who acquire wealth through unscrupulous means return this ill gotten wealth back to the government who then find a way to absorb it into good use.

Billions of shillings have been recovered from either those Kenyans who got the means through drug trade or corruption that has been rampant in the country in the past few years.
This afternoon, according to The Standard Newspaper, the government has taken back two high end vehicles from a businesswoman who is said to have gotten them through drug trade.
These two vehicles, which are luxurious, have been taken away from the businesswoman who is known as Joyce Akinyi.
She is said to have obtained them through drug trade which is illegal in the country as per the reports that we have with us.
Justice Esther Maina did not disclose which type of vehicles they were which were repossessed by the government for being gotten through ill means.
It's unclear if Joyce Akinyi will appeal this ruling that sees her lose the 20 million Shillings Worth cars.
