Illegal sugar imports
The influx of unlicensed sugar smuggled in top the country by unscrupulous businessmen was first spotted in Bungoma County a week before the government released custom import licenses for importation of the commodity last Friday.
Some of the sugar has been reported been repacked into Kakira and Lugazi Sugar Company bags. Farmers from the affected Nzoia, Butali and West Kenya Sugar growing zones are outraged by illegal imports.
