An assortment of sex toys, pornographic materials and viagra were nabbed at Eldoret International Airport and Nakuru, after owners of the unclaimed goods failed to collect them and clear their due custom duty.

The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) issued a gazette notice to destroy the uncollected goods.

“Pursuant to the provisions of sections 42 and 248 of the East African Community Customs Management Act, 2004, notice is given that unless the under-mentioned goods are entered and removed from the custody of the Customs Warehouse Keeper, Eldoret and Nakuru within 30 days of this notice, they will be treated as abandoned and will be disposed of by crushing on April 17,” reads the notice.

At the Eldoret International Airport, KRA chief manager-in-charge of Rift Valley, Simon Luseno said KRA had seized 6,000 tablets of the enhancement pill Vigrx Plus, 35 pieces of Viagra (50mg), nine pieces of Cialis 20mg, Magic Chocolate Vimax, pornographic material 40 pieces of unlabeled brown powder, and 20 bottles of unlabeled liquid, sound gun plastic toy, mirage tobacco, artificial male organs, vibrator and arousal cream and a gun looking shisha.

The KRA Chief manager in charge of Rift Valley further revealed that the impounded sex toys, pornographic materials and viagra at the Eldoret International Airport were in transit to Nakuru as the final destination.

Unclaimed Financial Assets Authority under the same notice has offered a one month period for objection to the claims received on assets from administrators of deceased persons and agents of the original owners, failure to which payment will be made to the persons.

The notice also indicated that a Toyota Carina, registered in Uganda alleged to be owned by an MP from Nakuru County faced destruction unless evidence on its legalised operation was presented.

The anonymous traders responsible for the sex toys, pornographic materials and viagra and the Toyota vehicle were allowed to make a formal claim within thirty (30) days of the gazette notice or face destructions.
