The Directorate of Criminal Investigations has seized the Range Rover belonging to the former Starehe MP Hon. Steve Mbogo.
Steve Mbogo is accused of fraudulently obtaining the number plates for the Range Rover and tax evasion.
“Upon carrying out preliminary investigations, the vehicle number plates were found to belong to a Probox,” the DCI said.
KRA was quick to point out that the Range Rover Sport together with a BMW X5 were imported to the country through the Mombasa Port sealed in a 40-foot container from the UK.
According to KRA Customs Officer Kelvin Safari, the documents for the container indicated that it was a Mercedes Benz A180 and a BMW 1251 Sport but upon scanning the container, they discovered that the documents were falsified.
“…but upon scanning, a used Range Rover Sport HSE SDV6 and used BMW X5 were found inside the container,” Safari pointed out.
Reports indicate that the cars had been stolen before finding their way into the country.
