A Senatorial political Aspirant for Tharaka Nithi was yesterday charged of being in possession of unaccustomed goods valued at about Sh 9.6 Million.

Francis Kiambi alias Matanka kiambi was charged alongside Mary Waigwe Muthoni_ Director of Patiala Distillers Kenya limited based Embakasi, Nairobi.

The two are said that on the 18 day of October 2016 at Salford Godowns, within their firm were found in possession of 50 litres of Extra Neutral Spirit with dutiable value of Kshs 10,150,000.

The commodity was from Spectre International Ltd, a family business of Raila Odinga Family. It is clear, the firm is not sued.

Police charge sheet record shows they were using motor vehicle Registration No. KBR 554H/ZD8522 Mercedes Axor Truck.

The politician denied the charges and ordered to pay 300.000 cash bail and personal bond of 2million. This leaves his political aspirations in disarray if found guilty and a possibility of being locked out of the race due to chapter six of the Constitution on ethics and Integrity.

Three drivers and seven loaders were also in a Nairobi court. They were charged with diverting 100,000 litres of ethanol destined to Mwanza in Tanzania.

Police record say they were evading to pay duty worth over Sh 19.3.
