Approximately 6000 second-hand cars are stuck at port Mombasa after the government department that collects taxes issued out an order demanding that no imported vehicles should be left to go before they are registered and provided with a logbooks.
The new directive has been implemented purposely to fight against non-payment or under-payment of taxes.
Previously, the car importers were only supposed to have number plate registration as well as National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) stickers to get a complete clearance from Mombasa port.
Delays in making and printing of logbooks following the new rule amended by Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has caused the vehicle importers to suffer loses.
The vice chairman of Car Importers Association of Kenya (CIAK), Mr Farook said they are facing incredible delays in releasing vehicles simply because the production of logbooks consume a lot of time, thus making importers suffer losses by paying more money, ie storage charges.
