Announcing the suspension, Naivas Chief Commercial Officer Willy Kimani said that the whole stock of red meat will be taken through a thorough independent lab test and a step by step verification of each participant along the whole meat value chain.

“We will only be selling white meat for now in all our butcheries,” said Kimani.

In Machakos, governor Mutua closed all meat sections of Naivas Supermarket after it was discovered that Naivas Supermarket at Gateway Mall in Mavoko, Machakos County, had 3,286 milligrams of an additive that should not be used in meat.
