Expired Government Sanitary Towels Seized in Juja

Police officers have seized expired government-issued sanitary pads at a residential house in Witethie, Juja County.

The pads, which were valued to be over Ksh 300,000, are reported to have been repackaged for sale. Police reported that the sanitary pads were looted from different counties around the country such as Kiambu, Mombasa, Kilifi, and Murang’a.

Juja Sub-County Police Commander Dorothy Migarusha stated that they identified the owner of the house to be Stephen Muchoki and had started a manhunt for him.

She also said that the illegal business was conducted for the last two years.

Some residents have told us that these sanitary towels were brought here back in 2018 and that Mr Muchoki leaves this unfinished house with loaded sacks to unknown destination. We are looking for him to explain how government property landed in his house and why

Local residents have since decried increased cases of Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) among females which they linked to the use of expired sanitary towels.

It’s a shame that someone is making money out of free goods that are distributed by the government! It is quite sad that they are even expired towels no wonder we have so many cases of Urinary Tract Infections around
