The Kilifi Police Station has announced a mass auction of uncollected vehicles, motorcycles, and tuk-tuks stored on their premises.
Through an official notice published in the Gazette on Friday, August 25, the police station clarified that this auction initiative is a response to a directive from the Senior Principal Magistrate’s Court at Kilifi Law Court, which has granted authorization for the process.
“An order by the Senior Principal Magistrate’s Court at Kilifi Law Courts, under Miscellaneous Case No. M077 of 2023, to the owners of motorcycles, motor vehicles, and tuk-tuks lying at Kilifi Police Station, to collect the same within fourteen (14) days from the date of this publication of this notice.
“Failure to which Autoland Auctioneers, Mombasa, shall proceed to dispose of the said motorcycles and scrap metals by way of public auction on behalf of Kilifi Police Station if they remain uncollected/unclaimed,” read the statement in part.
The station’s inventory reveals that 33 motorcycles are scheduled to be auctioned within the next 14 days following the expiration of the notice period issued to the respective owners.
Although the precise auction venue is yet to be disclosed by the police station, it is noteworthy that the lineup includes motorcycle models such as Haojin, Boxer, and Senke.
Thirteen tuk-tuks are also listed for sale, with the assurance from the station that these items are all in favorable condition.
On vehicles, Kilifi Police Station is poised to part with seven motor vehicles, as their owners have displayed prolonged delays in claiming possession.
The assortment of vehicles encompasses Toyota Vitz, Nissan, and Toyota Succeed.
Additionally, beyond operational vehicles, damaged automobiles and motorcycles will be sold as scrap metal.
In preparation for this operation, auctioneer Ezekiel Kiminza has been designated to facilitate the proceedings.
