On Monday, Kenyans on Twitter exposed how corrupt officials at Kenya Bureau of Standards(KEBS) created a commercialized monopoly to swindle Kenyans.
According to a day-long trending hashtag, KEBS officials had fraudulently installed a blacklisted Japanese company- Quality Inspection Services inc Japan(QISJ) to be the sole firm in charge of all car imports in the country.
Earlier today, KEBS while riding on the Worlds Laboratory day clout, the corrupt officials at the agency tried to run a failed Public Relations (PR) to cleanse their dirty dealings.

In the tweet that has zero engagements, and with less than 50 views, KEBS tries to lure Kenyans to be responsible as if they-KEBS themselves are responsible.
Kenyans are woke and there’ is nothing that is going to change that fact, corruption won’t be starving millions and then comes on the timelines trying to ‘make sense’.
The country is flooded with substandard foodstuffs and all have the alleged ‘standard mark of quality’
Look how sugar, most which is already contaminated or gets contaminated with deadly metals is packaged
Take this, for instance, this is a 2KG package of Pembe maize flour from the supermarket. The flour has a KEBS mark on it yet it is filled with weevils
Benard Njiraini can longer be trusted. He needs to be sacked. Overseeing Corruption is what he’s doing at KEBS.
Do you know 40% of our imports are counterfeit goods? Some of them are the cause of the rapid increase in cancer cases?
Last year, Sameer Group closed its industries and fired all workers citing tough times.
KEBS had allowed thousands of substandard tyre brands to flood the market and that’s the when the rain started beating Sameer Group.
KEBS officials were bribed by the proprietor of Auto Express Kenya Ltd to allow the influx of fake tyres thus leading to many deaths as a result of accidents across the country.
The influx of fake tyres led to the closure of Sameer group.
Sub Standard tyres are a cause of multiple road accidents each week.
Things Killer KEBS have allowed in the country include, contaminated sugar, dub standard fertilizer, fake cigarettes, plastic rice, Chinese plastic fish and Omena, fake electronics the bureau of Standards has had a hand in killing our industries.
When is this madness going to stop? KEBS need to understand the price in terms of lives lost.
