NAIROBI, March 27 (NNN-AGENCIES) — The German authorities have said they do not have to pay for the six million face masks the government ordered but that went missing from an airport in Kenya.

The shipment was due in Germany on March 20 but never arrived after disappearing at the end of last week, Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine reported.

The German embassy in Kenya tweeted on Thursday that they had agreed to pay upon delivery so they would not be paying.

The statement embedded in the tweet added that the supplier had not given them a reason why they had not delivered. — NNN-AGENCIES
