Coffee worth 6 million shillings stolen in Murang’a

A factory in Murang’a County has lost coffee estimated to be worth Ksh. 6 million following a gang attack that took place on Tuesday 14 January 2020.

The gang believed to be using a truck made away with more than 150 coffee bags from the store as well as drying tables at Gathinja factory within Kahuro Sub-County

The factory is associated with the Kahuhia farmer’s cooperative society and is the third to lose its coffee after the county commissioner, Mohammed Barre, issued an advisory on the imminent theft of coffee.

Farmers steered by Edwin Matiba blamed the management committee for losses since information about the looming theft had been issued.

Farmers only learned about what had happened by around 5 am after the gang had long gone.

Matiba states that the management disregarded the county security committee’s order not to store coffee in bags without reporting to the nearest police post.

“The management should be forced to pay for the loss as this is a pure inside job that the police should investigate,” said Matiba.

Kahuro stand-in deputy county commissioner Amos Nyansoro assured that the issue would be investigated and the culprits brought to book.

Over the past one month, factories that have suffered the loss include Geitwa, and Kiawanduma factories in Mathioya and Kiharu sub-counties.

The factories have been advised not to stock more than 150 coffee bags at a time, without the notice of the chiefs and police.
