A total of 1365 bags of contraband sugar worth close to 14 million shillings has been nabbed and it emerges that some of this sugar contains mercury and copper components. A government chemist report reveals that the contamination was in sizable percentages causing a major health hazard to consumers. The sugar seized in Eastleigh, Ruiru and Nairobi's Industrial Area was packaged in fake miller brands with the machines used also impounded in the raid.
