Earlier this year UNBS, police and other organisations set out a plan to wipe out fake products in the country and have on several occasions closed shop for those found with fake and illegal products.

The tax collecting agency cautioned the public to desist from smuggling fake products into the country as these cause harm to people’s health.

URA loses billions each year in smuggled fake products in the country.
