In Homa Bay County, police have launched an investigation to find out the driver who was driving the vehicle that was arrested ferrying eggs illegally from Uganda.
The vehicle is said was carry 7,800 crates of eggs that are worth Ksh. 2.7 million, and was first spotted at Mbita town.
The roadblocks were set up along Rodi Kopany township to intercept, but the driver and his turn boy fled to the bush avoiding being arrested by the officers.
Abed Kavoo, the DCI Homa Bay County confirmed the egg was brought to the country illegally as it lacked official documents of transportation.
“It seemed the driver knew he was in an illegal business and that is why he could not stop the lorry for security check-in Mbita,” Kavoo said.
“They used shortcuts. We are still looking for them so they can face the law,” he added.
It was confirmed by the DCI that the owner of the vehicle was from South Nyanza as the National Transport and Safety Authority registration indicates.
“We suspect the eggs were being ferried to one of the South Nyanza counties,” Kavoo said.
