Imported cars may leave the port without number plates


Transport regulator has opened talks with the Kenya Revenue Authority to release used cars from the Mombasa port without number plates following a supply hitch at Kamiti Maximum Security Prison.

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) is engaging the taxman to allow cars leave the port without plates and for the importers to use the third identifier stickers for clearance.

More than 4,000 imported second-hand vehicles are lying at container freight stations (CFS) in Mombasa since October 18, and owners are being charged Sh3,000 daily for delayed clearance.
