The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) is set to auction over 400 vehicles. These vehicles are currently being housed at various custom warehouses.
They will be auctioned on December 15, 2022. However, their owners have been given the option of clearing them out before the auction date, failure to which the hammer will fall on them.
According to a notice by the KRA, the vehicles at risk of getting auctioned include various models such as Volkswagen, Mistubishi, Subaru Forester, Lexus, Nissan Note, Nissan X-Trail, Mazda Cx-5, Probox, Subaru Legacy, Toyota Vit, Honda Fit, and Mercedes-Benz.
Toyota Harriers, Suzuki Alto, Audi A3, Toyota Crown, Peugeot, Mazda Demio, Toyota Hiace, Volvo S60, Toyota Wish, BMW X5 Subaru Imprezza, Land Rover Range, and Cruiser Prado.
The KRA asked interested bidders to access the full list that was published in a Gazette notice Volume CXXIV-No.238.
The notice has the lot number, ship name and date, date of arrival, container/chassis marks and number, container size, consignee, manifest number as well as the bill of lading (BoL) number.
Interested bidders will then have to physically appear at the Customs Warehouse on either Tuesday, December 13, or Wednesday, December 14.
They will be given a document with the prices of the vehicles. They will pay a refundable fee to obtain a bidding number based on the vehicle model in form of a banker’s cheque. Once bidding starts, the highest bidder will walk away when the hammer falls.
