The goods include sex toys, shisha, bleaching creams, drones, guns, toy guns, handcuffs, walkie-talkies, and viagra packs among others, which KRA says were being smuggled into the country between July and October 2023.

KRA Commissioner General Humphrey Wattanga disclosed the customs department at the airport intercepted 132 prohibited items and 431 restricted items in a total of 440 interceptions.
