Kenya: Govt Approves Importation of Duty Free Dates for Ramadhan

Nairobi — The Government has approved the importation of tax-free dates for use during the holy month of Ramadhan.

In a statement, Treasury Cabinet Secretary Njuguna Ndung'u stated that the dates will also not be subjected to Import Declaration Fee and Railway Development Levy.
