The taxman intends to auction Nakumatt Supermarkets’ property in a move that signals a deepening of the retail chain’s financial troubles.

In a notice published in the Kenya Gazette, the Kenya Revenue Authority’s (KRA) customs services department has listed five consignments of Clarks footwear and handbags flown in through Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport as the goods to be sold at the fall of the hammer.

The KRA says Nakumatt has not paid the required taxes for the goods that are currently stored in a warehouse.

“Pursuant to the provisions of Section 42 of the East African Community Customs Management Act, 2004, notice is given that unless the under mentioned goods are entered and removed from the Customs Warehouse Keeper within thirty (30) days from the date of this notice, they will be sold by public auction on November 29, 2017 ,” the notice says.
