Two companies associated with the Kenyatta family are among firms and individuals whose goods are set for auction at the JKIA Customs bonded warehouse.

Mediamax Ltd, which owns People Daily newspaper, a host of television and radio stations as well as Brookside Dairies have failed to collect parcels sent from abroad.

Mediamax reportedly imported three Studio Mic Boom packages weighing 35 kilogrammes on February 21.

East Africa’s leading dairy products processor has a 20.5 kilogramme package at JKIA imported on September 10, 2017 via Kenya Airways #ticker:KQ.

In last Friday’s Kenya Gazette, a notice issued and signed by Nairobi Customs Station chief manager Jane Ayako, said the two packages will be part of hundreds of unclaimed goods that will be auctioned on October 22.
