KPA Claims Ann Njeri Not Owner of Disputed Sh17B Oil Shipment

The gas oil valued at Sh 17 billion is not owned by Ann Njeri of Ann’s Import and Exports, according to a declaration made by KPA Board Chairman Benjamin Tayari.

The continuing legal battle between two businesses over who owns the oil shipment that the ship vessel MT Haigui delivered to the port has been derailed by the Kenya Ports Authority.

Following directives to prevent certain oil marketers from offloading 93,460.46 metric tons from the vessel, Njeri has been reported missing.

Tayari pointed out that the consignees and the corresponding amounts of the bulk cargo were specified in the manifest that the ship’s agent had provided, and KPA verified that M/s Ann’s Import and Export Enterprises Limited was not one of the consignees that had been manifested.

KPA claims that Aramco Trading Fujairah is the owner of the consignment, which contains 49,091.724 MT of gasoil intended for Kenya and 44,368.736 MT of transit goods for neighboring countries like Uganda, South Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Claims to the 93,460.46 metric tons of diesel in question were made by Galana Energies Ltd and M/s Ann’s Import and Export Enterprises Limited. The diesel was discharged at New Oil Kipevu on November 5, 2023, at 1342 HRS.

The court had issued Njeri with orders prohibiting the oil’s discharge and dumping, as well as preventing the ship from exiting the harbor.

Her attorney, Ombeta, informed the court that Ann Njeri had imported the diesel from Turkey with her Israeli companion, starting the journey on October 9th and passing through the port of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.
