……..That contaminated sugars which were laced with harmful chemicals were allowed into the markets. It’s shameful and a tragedy in waiting and it showcases the height of impunity, inefficiency and ineffectiveness of the Government apparatus that are mandated to protect Kenyan citizenry.

The recent impounding of dirty sugar which were contaminated opened a Pandora’s box of what happens in the whole underground, illegal black markets world which has turned into a national issue of concern.

And, the State Government must remove the dirty sugars from the markets and punish the importers. The public safety and consumer protection must be put high on the agenda of these investigations.

But, in a matter of introspective, how much of the dirty sugar has been sold to traders and is circulating in the markets all over the country even as the investigations continue? And, as a consumer, how can I know whether the packet of sugar I’m picking up from the shop is contaminated, or, not?

This impounding of contaminated sugars raises queries on the health safety of the Kenyan citizenry when it comes to the matter of the goods they are consuming. Are there enough safeguards regulations for traders who happens to import this sugars to adhere to when they are importing this sugars?

And, this unfolding saga opened a lid of the underlying problems that affect our society……where humans aren’t minding other humans welfare. They only profiteer themselves at the expense of the poor and gullible Kenyans. And, how anyone can dump dirty and contaminated sugars into our markets is beyond words and a matter of concern.

It also showcases that Kenyans have all along been exposed to harmful and contaminated goods without their prior knowledge.

And, the public institutions that are mandated to protect Kenyans from the harmful effects of these contaminated goods are sleeping on their jobs. Despite there been stringent rules and regulations that are followed before the clearance of these goods into the markets, these institutions have been turning a blind eye by allowing unscrupulous traders to sneak in these dirty and contaminated sugars

The unfolding of these pathetic saga rubberstamps the inefficiency of government officials who have been mandated to guard these public institutions. These government officials have been compromised…..as corruption is rife and is in the offing so that they can allow these substandard goods to enter into the markets.

And, that’s why our markets are always flooded with illegal contraband goods which aren’t approved by the government of which poses a great hazard to the Kenyan citizenry. This raises queries about the efficiency and effectiveness of government apparatus that are mandated to protect the Kenyan citizenry from these contaminated goods.

These public institutions, and, especially Kenya Bearue of Standard, and, Kenya Revenue Authority that bears the heaviest burden of proof when it comes to scrutinizing these goods that entering into our markets have failed us and aren’t doing their jobs effectively thus exposing Kenyans to hazardous risks.

And…..corruption….is the underlying factor that’s causing all these problems and blunders that are unfolding. Government officials have been compromised by these corrupt cartels so that they can dump these dirty sugars without proper verification process.

These corrupt government officials aren’t minding the welfare of millions of Kenyans with their devious corrupt schemes that are exposing Kenyans to the harmful effects of these dirty sugars. Their bad mentality of been compromised so that they can a blind eye to facilitate the illegal entry of these contaminated sugars which isn’t fit for human consumption are hurting Kenyans.

But, one tends to wonder……that some contaminated sugars were allowed into the markets. That’s shameful and a tragedy in waiting. The disaster is utter destruction to millions of Kenyans of which has become a national issue of concern.

The detained sugars had metals, was of poor quality. Samples tested showed that it wasn’t fit for human consumption and posed a serious health risk. Samples tested positive for lead and copper and also didn’t meet the quality standard for total viable counts for microbiological matter which determines the shelf life of consumable goods.

The high presence of copper and lead in the sugar means millions of Kenyans have been exposed to the harmful effects of the heavy metals, which can cause a wide range of diseases and disorders.
