KPA to sell uncollected vehicles at Mombasa
Thursday, 9th October, 2008

OVER 300 vehicles destined for Uganda, Rwanda, Sudan, Burundi and the DR Congo abandoned at Mombasa Port will be auctioned as scrap, the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) has said.

These are some of the 600 vehicles that have remained uncollected at the port for over eight years, William Mtengo, the KPA representative in Uganda, said.
�While I do not have all the details, I think most of those vehicles are for Ugandans.�

The development follows an order issued jointly by James Mulewa, the KPA acting manager, and Wambui Namu, the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) commissioner for customs, to cargo-owners last week.

The order said vehicles and containers that had stayed for long should be collected within seven days or else they would be sold off as scrap.
The move, the officials said, was aimed at clearing the port.

�The lists of uncollected transit vehicles have been forwarded to our embassies in Uganda, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
