Kenyan Ministry of Medical Services has impounded two shipments of fake drugs destined for Nairobi that had been transported from Dubai into Eldoret International Airport.

Dr Simiyu Sibalileh who led Inspectors from the Ministry of Medical Services in impounding the drugs, said the medicines are now stored at the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) for testing, reported The Kenyan Standard.

The drugs were impounded because they did not have the required importation documents which would verify the authenticity of the medications. A cargo flight from Dubai landed at Eldoret with the contraband aboard, which was a transfer point, as the importers allegedly intended to transport the drugs by truck to Nairobi, reports The Standard.

The Ministry of Medical Services reports that two shipments arriving from Dubai intended for Nairobi have been intercepted at Eldoret this year.
