Twenty-six slot machines valued at over Ksh 700,000 were destroyed on Saturday in Garissa County after a three-month raid.
When speaking to the press at the Garissa landfill, Merissa Mwangi, Commissioner of Garissa County, stated that the machines were rounded up in December last year and January this year.
Two years ago, Home Secretary Fred Matiang’i directed regional and regional commissioners to eradicate illegal gambling activities.
The CS ordered raids on premises and the seizure of unlicensed slot machines.
