Three MPs from Western Kenya have raised the alarm on contraband sugar being secretly repackaged in Mumias Sugar bags and sold to Kenyans.

The MPs Godfrey Osotsi (nominated), Caleb Amisi  of Saboti and Busia Woman representative Florence Mutua said sugar barons are behind the Mumias sugar woes.

According to the three, the excess sugar imported in the country last year is being repackaged in Mumias sugar bags and stocked in the retail shops in various towns.

“Mumias Sugar Company for the past six months have not produced any sugar. Supermarkets I talked to said they received large quantities of Mumias Sugar which were quickly bought off the shelves by Kenyans,” said Osotsi.

Osostsi said he contacted management at the Sugar company who confirmed the company has no sugar in the market.

Amisi has called on DCI to investigate the matter.

“The fact that the report failed on the floor of the House does not mean we leave the sugar barons to do whatever they want,” added Mutua.
