Keroche bosses charged over Sh 14B tax evasion


Keroche Breweries Limited bosses have been charged in Nairobi over the Sh 14 billion tax evasion allegations.

Tabitha Mukami Muigai, Joseph Muigai Karanja and their company are facing 10 charges of fraud in relation to tax.

They denied the charges before Chief magistrate Francis Andayi.

Tabitha was released on a cash bail of Sh 10 million, Muigai 2 million and the company 15 million.

The three had moved to the high court yesterday seeking to be granted anticipatory bail.

They argued that the move by the the DPP to arrests and charge them as unfair and irrational since they did not seek statements from them to give their sides of the story.

The court heard that there is a tax dispute case between KRA and Keroche before the tax tribunal.

However the court did not grant the orders sought.
