Sugar seized in Eastleigh contains mercury, copper


Interior CS, Fred Matiangí has said that some of the contraband sugar seized in Eastleigh contains mercury and copper.

This report came from the chemical analysts who were testing the sugar.

The sugar, which was seized in Eastleigh last Monday, is said to have been introduced to the market before it could be transported to Mumias and Kabras for refining.

Three Kenyans of Somali origin were also arrested in the operation.
