Theft Of Tea
Police are hunting for the owner of a warehouse, and a company that forged documents used to steal up to Sh30 million worth of tea leaves meant for export from the port in Mombasa. The forged documents claimed that the consignment in eight containers were wrongly marked and were therefore being recalled for correct marking. On Monday evening, the police were tipped off that the consignment had left the port, and was in the process of being diverted into the local market. The consignment was originally on its way to the United Kingdom.
