Detectives have impounded two vehicles for evasion of duty through an organized scheme which purports that they were manufactured at a fictitious company in Mombasa.
In a tweet, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said the two Mercedes Benz (registration numbers KCR 565 W and KCR 195 P) which were impounded on Saturday, belong to Ms Cynthia Wanjiru Gitonga and Mr John Mwangi respectively.

According to the DCI, the two vehicles were declared as having been manufactured as trailers in a Mombasa-based company.
Just last week the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) intercepted and impounded three high-end fuel guzzlers at the Mombasa Port which were on transit to Uganda.
Three vehicles – Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Vogue, and Land Rover Discovery – confirmed stolen in Interpol’s motor vehicles database were reportedly concealed in a container which was supposed to be ferrying household goods.
