The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) on Wednesday, June 14 destroyed sex toys worth Ksh300, 000 in Eldoret town in Uasin Gishu County.
According to KRA North Rift coordinator, Florence Otori, the toys were meant for sale to women and female university students in the Rift Valley region.
“It is unfortunate and disheartening to see businessmen and businesswomen import such gadgets into the country and resort to selling them in towns in Rift Valley. As KRA, we cannot allow the furthering of moral decadence by greedy businessmen and businesswomen who are only out to make money, forgetting the negative impact such gadgets can have on children, who may be tempted to try them out. As KRA we won’t allow the importation of such gadgets into the country,” said Ms Otori.
“It is shocking that women, who we look up to in society, are the ones buying such gadgets. Women should be epitomes of moral direction in society,” added Ms Otori.
The KRA North Rift boss did not reveal the owners of the gadgets, which were burned in bid to get rid of them.
