In 2016, Brookside, a company owners by the first family had to defend itself from allegations of selling contaminated non-pasteurised milk.
Brookside immediately defended itself advising the public to use processed milk.
There were reports that sale of contaminated unpasteurised milk had risen, leading to major health concerns.
There was an incident in Nakuru last in March 2016 where over 144 cases suspected to be of brucellosis infection were reported in the town due to consumption of unpasteurised milk sold at informal markets.
John Gethi, the processor’s director of milk procurement, assured clients that Brookside will insist on quality milk and apply food safety standards during processing and distribution of its products.
“We have invested in a stringent milk quality testing process that seeks to ensure that only the best is put out in the market. We have also instituted regular external audits to ensure that our quality management system continues to remain effective,” Gethi said in a statement yesterday.
In the same year in November, the Standard reported that Brookside was taking unsafe milk products to Western Kenya.
The article from standard has since been deleted but we all know that leaders especially the Kenyattas have never been for the wellbeing of Kenyans.
The family wanted to build a cancer center a few years ago, but quickly shelved the plans after one of theirs was part of those that stole over Ksh4 billion from Ministry of Health.
