The taxman is delaying food imports, court says.

Kenya Revenue Authority has been given seven days to respond to a suit they are accused of stifling license renewals thereby occasioning delay in food importation.

Kenya International Freight and Warehousing Association is seeking orders to compel Kenya Revenue Authority to renew licenses of its 1,300 members.

High court judge Roselyn Aburili said, “There is no big dispute here, there’s is just some delay, we can’t do without importation something has to be done, and we don’t have food on our shelves.”

KRA said that the vetting process of the insurance is ongoing adding that the applicants should be patient.

Despite having complied with its renewal obligations and duly applied for the year 2017 License, KRA has refused to issue the License, the association says.

“The said extensions are not envisaged under the East African Customs Community Management Act,”they argue.

Proceedings resume in two weeks’ time.
