Piles of brand new, trendy jeans were razed in Mombasa on Friday and yesterday, eight months after they were impounded at the Port.

The goods, worth Sh 960 million, were destroyed at the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) destruction site under tight security.

The goods, mainly finished clothes, were illegally imported by an EPZ company under Agoa privilege. They were seized at the Mombasa port in January this year in 16 containers.

The imports were made by M/s Lihua Export Processing Zone (EPZ), whose licence was immediately suspended in March by the Minister for Trade and Industry, Dr Mukhisa Kituyi, after investigations.

The clothes were imported from China but bore the made-in-Kenya label, and were destined for the US market.
