When sending goods to Kenya becomes a nightmare

Early this year Kenyans in living France were glad to learn a cheap and a faster way to send things to Kenya. SCS East Africa fright a company registered in cologne, Germany, directed by Ali salim promised to deliver goods to Kenya from Europe in 4 weeks plus 1 week of custom declaration in Kenya, a total of one month.

Six Months later my box is still in the hands of Ali Salim I am very disappointed. It's bad when a kenyan who knows how we struggle here in Europe takes from you the little share you have suffered for. Declared one of his clients .

Another client in Paris says, Ali salim collected her box on the 8 mai and got a confirmation of the shipping to Kenya on the 12th June. After shipping he told me to give 45-60 days which were expiring in Aug. After that it has been a cat and mouse chase. I later posted my complaint on his Facebook wall and since then he pulled down my post and blocked me. Thats when I took it to the wakenya whatsapp group, where he was forced to respond. He said I give him 2 weeks, this by the way was end of September. The 2 weeks have elapsed no word from him and he has gone MIA. We are in mid october. All I want is to recover my things, (sic) she says.

Recently a whatsapp group for Ali salim clients in France was formed with the aim of recovering their goods, they have also a Facebook page and invite all those who are victimes to join them https://www.facebook.com/alisalimeurope/

There are many kenyans who are in same situation here in France and all over Europe, we will not allow someone to take advantage of our sweat.

We are ready to undergo all existing procedures so as to either get back what we gave to Ali Salim, if he does not delivers them to destination, said one of the founders of the group.

Kenya Ports Authorities in Mombasa

One of our editors managed to get the bill of landing number WECC1630MBA1130 that Ali Salim had provided one of clients. A Kenya Ports Authority agent Mr. Nyaga told us the container corresponding to the bill of landing was cleared from the port in July 2016 by Dodwell east Africa, a kenyan kenyan company.

The said container contained glasses and its destination was Uganda. Nyaga explained that this kind of case is normal. Importers declare things different from what the container contains, so as not to pay high taxes. They end up paying a low tax forfaiture for their container. The destination also can make vary the charges of the container.
