Customs officers at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) have come under scrutiny following allegations of theft from shipments at the FedEx facility.
A video clip allegedly captured by CCTV cameras at the airport was sent to us by a source who sought anonymity, showing the supposed theft.
The footage shows customs officers inspecting shipments at the FedEx facility, only to allegedly help themselves to items that catch their eye.
The theft is said to have taken place right under the noses of FedEx officials, who were reportedly unaware of the customs officers’ alleged actions.
“This is CCTV footage that shows how customs officers steal from shipments when they are inspecting,” the source who provided the clip said.
The alleged theft raises serious concerns about the safety and security of goods passing through the airport.
As the main hub for air cargo in East Africa, JKIA handles a large volume of cargo every day, and this news is sure to cause alarm among both business owners and customers.
FedEx is yet to comment on the allegations, but the matter is expected to be handed over to relevant authorities, who will launch an investigation into the alleged theft.
If found guilty, the customs officers involved could face severe consequences for their actions.
This latest development is likely to raise further questions about the effectiveness of security measures at the airport.
It is imperative that steps are taken to address any weaknesses in the system to prevent any further incidents of theft and restore confidence in the airport’s ability to safely handle goods passing through its facilities.
