Flying Squad boss on Saturday night led detectives for a raid and closed two distillers in connection with tax evasion and other offences.

The two industries, identified as Two Cousins Distillers Limited and Munene Industries, were raided after a driver was arrested while transporting suspected contraband goods to Karuri, within Kiambu county.

According to the police, investigations led the detectives to the two distillers where they confiscated drums of ethanol, cartons of Trace Vodka and other documents.

Police are hunting down the company directors who are still at large.


Last month, Platinum Distillers Limited, an alcoholic drinks manufacturer based in Ruiru, was closed down over an alleged plot to evade payment of up to Sh14 million in taxes.

The factory was shut down during a sting operation by officers from the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). Four people were arrested.
