They claimed that the invoice was to support the cost of storage of 40,000 metric tonnes of white maize, which was allegedly incurred by Chelsea Freight.

“Going by the evidence adduced by the prosecution side the court is certain that a Prima face case has been made against the three to warrant them being placed in their defense,” said the court.

The cereals board lost approximately 1.9 b shillings to unscrupulous business people who either did not supply to the national storage or were fake farmers.An audit report released by the Auditor general last year shows there were up to 220 fake farmers who were paid millions of shillings over maize which they did not deliver.
