Contraband goods nabbed

Suspects have been nubbed along the Busia county as they were trying to cross into Kenya. In the Matayos, Busia county, the suspects were found with contraband alcoholic drinks.

Most people prefer the contraband goods because of their cheap nature. Alternatively, businessmen are also evading taxes by the government, considering that Kenya highly tax most imported goods.

Due to the porous nature of Kenyan border, most goods easily find their way into the republic.The process of controlling contraband faces a great challenge like a bribe, insufficient skilled and competent manpower, lack of ongoing training, low salary of the workers, corruption, inadequate enforcement and penalties and ineffective respond to tax evasion in the area.

To mitigate contraband, the government should raise domestic innovations, manufacturing and human resource capacity development, strengthen strong enforcement of the rules and punishments, and even create a conducive environment for effective coordination and communication among controlling unit and the general public.
