The directorate of Criminal Investigations in Kenya detectives have tracked down and recovered 1,700 bales of stolen certified hybrid maize seeds worth approximately 7 million from a private warehouse in Narok.

The crime fighters investigated Narok's Kenya Seed Company supervisor Brian Meja and discovered that he had leased a warehouse near the company. Close sources disclose that he had been working closely with two Asain traders Yogesh and Gaurav.

The detectives raided the warehouse and found stolen high-yielding seeds of variety 6213 belonging to the seed company. It was thought that the seeds were being transported by Probox vehicles temporality to the warehouse before being supplied to the Asain traders.

It was established the company manager used to package ordinary colored maize and lied to farmers that they were Kenya Seed's Variety 6213. They would then sell it to the unsuspecting farmers who would end up up harvesting poorly. They would then transport the genuine seed 6213 variety to his warehouse so as to incur high profit from its sales.

The DCI thanked members of the public who had provided them with information about the fraudsters one week ago.

We should always report crime and be ambassadors of peace and stability always.
