Police in Nakuru arrested seven people and impounded more than 10,000 litres of assorted second generation liquor of unknown value in a house belonging to a prominent politician in the country.
Led by Nakuru OCPD John Omukata, Nakuru DCIO Henry Kiambati and Nakuru sub-county deputy county commissioner Elmi Shaffi, the officers raided the house in the posh Milimani Estate on Wednesday morning.
The officers also seized Kenya Bureau of Standards and Kenya Revenue Authority stickers.
“We thank the members of the public for giving us the information, I gathered my officers and we raided the premise and we recovered the items,” said Omukata.
“We did not manage to arrest the owner of this premise and the owner of the alcohol but we are conducting our investigation but once we arrest them, we will arraign them in court as soon as possible,” added Omukata.
According to Nakuru West Sub-County Commissioner Elmi Shafi, the house belongs to a former minister.
“The owner of this premise is known. He is prominent senior politician in the country but we can’t identify him till we finalize our investigation. We need to clearly verify though we understand he has leased out for Alcohol packaging,” said Shaffi.
Some of the brands of liquor netted include gold star, gold tyms, summer ice lite, blue rider, the chase, sparkler and survivor.
The OCPD added that they are pursuing other suspects.
