Clearing agents to down tools in KRA licence spat

Operations at major entry ports are likely to be disrupted following a strike call by clearing and forwarding agents who are protesting non-issuance of licences by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).

The Kenya International Freight and Warehousing Association (Kifwa) yesterday said its members’ boycott would affect KRA’s Simba System, payment of taxes and the evacuation of cargo.

Road, sea and air cargo entry points will be affected.

“Kifwa members express displeasure in the mismanagement and mistreatment of all its members by the Customs Office and a stand-off with the Commissioner General, KRA, among other grievances,” said KIFWA spokesperson William Ojonyo.
