Kenya: United Millers’ plan to save 30,000 bags of sugar from destroying failed

United Millers’ attempt to get an order from the court to stop destroying 30,000 bags of sugar has failed.

The High Court dismissed the case but the company moved to the Supreme Court against the court order.

According to the media report, the Court on last Friday refused to hear the case saying there is nothing on the interpretation of the Constitution to be determined.

Kenya Bureau of Standards had in 2018 seized the 30,000 bags of sugar from the Mauritius consignment and found them to be unfit for human consumption.

The authorities had told the United Millers that the sugar it has imported failed the yeast and mold test and is not fit for sale in the market and was decided to destroy it.

The company through its director Kamal Narshi Shah argued that the decision was unreasonable, arbitrary and an infringement of its right to fair administrative action.
