Taming Tabitha Karanja

Most wealthy people on the planet have tax compliance issues. Even Donald Trump had to make a deal with the IRS to settle tax before he got hammered.

Shida ya peasants ni wanadhani kuwa birrionare ni rahisi. Ni kama wakona machungu mtu akona pesa kuwaliko so anafaa kuenda chini.

Ngoja ufike huko juu uone venye game inachezwa ndio utajua. It's survival for the fittest!

I have no doubts that Keroche has tax arrears may be running into billions but the fact is that if what they were only interested in was tax, this James Bond tactics would not be applied... they can seize their factories and other assets and ensure that all the taxes are paid for (after exhausting all the legal processes)... this is not good for our nation... tax issues will always be there in and outside Kenya and how they are resolved is what matters...
this was declared "illicko" by the courts

Buda, you can't operate the way you want when running a big establishment like Keroche, but sometimes KRA uses stupid tactics...
sometimes they even change some rules and back date the calculations, a sleezy bunch of motherfuckers ...
And in Keroche's case its a dispute of what calculation should have applied, Keroche raised an official dispute and HAJI jumps into it with arrests,

Its as if they have not been paying. Why not just summon her officially to respond ?? would they do the same to directors at EABL?

You seem to know more than what is in public domain. I am responding to what is in public domain sir

from Robert Alai, https://www.facebook.com/robertalai/posts/2479360358790876?__tn__=K-R
Sometime back, Keroche borrowed Ksh 5 billion from
Barclays Bank of Kenya to modernize its factory. With such a loan, it's always a good practice for the bank to require some political assurance as security for its investment.

Tabitha Karanja wrote to Pres. Kibaki to honour an invite and open modernized factory on completion. Kibaki agreed to be the guest of honour.

Powerful people in State House saw this schedule on the then President Kibaki's itinerary. They didn't like it. Tabitha was a threat to their wealth.

That opening of Keroche's new factory by Kibaki was silently removed from the President's itinerary. Tabitha was not aware.

The late Jeremiah Kiereini together with Ministers Amos Kimunya and the late John Michuki teamed up to stop Tabitha. Mrs. Kimunya was a major distributor of EABL products while Kiereini was a key shareholder of the same.

Michuki hated new money influences in Kiukuyuland.

Tabitha Karanja realized she was alone when she tried to confirm with the State House comptroller Hyslop Ipu. Mr. Ipu just indicated to Tabitha, "I am not aware of what happened and can't confirm the president's availability."

Tabitha was then in front of State House asking for a personal audience with President Kibaki to plead her case. She was driving herself.

Tabitha Karanja literally cried in her car as she made calls to all the powerful people close to Kibaki, none who could rescue her. Confused and teary, she was determined to fight on. So she thought of what to do. In the meantime, the hawk-eyed GSU guarding State House chased her from the gates.

She had just driven from Naivasha to State House and was blocked from seeing President Kibaki who was in?

The then President Kibaki's PA Joe Wanjui confirmed receiving her invite but someone powerful had blocked her from getting the factory opened by President Kibaki.

Realizing that Kibaki's people had played her, she got in touch with one of her employees who knew Jakoyo Midiwo and asked for an audience with Raila.

Tabitha didn't have access to Raila then.

Jakoyo linked her to Raila. Raila was then not well aware of what Keroche was.

Tabitha met Jakoyo at Serena Hotel and Jakoyo drove her to Karen's residence of Raila.

On the day of the unveiling of the new factory, Raila was also to grace an event in Kisumu.

But he agreed to pass by.

He asked if they had a helipad as he could pass by on his way to Kisumu. He told them that he could spend a maximum of 15 minutes. It was 48 hours to the d-day

Sensing "mwanya", Tabitha asked Raila what he needed for the helipad as she can prepare that.

Tabitha Karanja prepared a helipad for Raila's chopper within 36 hours.

Raila graced the occasion and instead of spending only 15 minutes, spent 3 hours. Raila loved the investment

That's where the friendship of Raila Odinga and Tabitha Karanja emanated from. That's how Tabitha knew and became friends to Raila.

Today, Keroche has a factory capable of producing 24,000 crates of beer or 600,000 beers in a single day.

The competitor is not happy with this. EABL is doing all it can and now using the DCI and ODPP to sabotage it.

To get into the club of billionaires in Kikiyuland, you have to be oathed. Tabitha Karanja is growing balls without being oathed into this club.

She has to be contained. Unfortunate. So unfortunate!!!
This Alai clown needs to accept that he is a 'has been' and swiftly move on. Period. Like mutoko and Jeff time waits for no man especially one allergic to change.

Typical, ''crimes by others is my defence''. We know it is not easy to be a billionaire in Kenya, yes. You need to steal massively, a difficult job

The same courts will grant them bail/ bond, release them only the flying squad guys to rearrest them at the gate, then charge them wih new offences, they get released on some other bond/ bail... and the circus continues... after DCI? ODPP requesting court to allow them to hold the couple for 21 days to finalize investigations . No taxes will be paid... ama ni aje?

have you read her response ? there are disputes with KRA but she is not a tax evader , this lady not being a supporter of the "kikuyu dynasties" has been very keen with her books trust me, pure witch hunt
Her company is being targeted because she’s become very rich and money is power. Power must never be allowed to leave Ichaweri. Illuminati tactics!
For Tabitha to survive the traps cartels have laid on her business over the years, I believe she’s been extremely meticulous in all her record keeping and compliant with the law.

The company which collects taxes on all alcoholic beverages and soft drinks in Kenya is called SICPA. It’s a Swiss-based company, which KRA awarded a contract to collect taxes on their behalf. Those guys are at every distiller in the country 24/7 with their powerful computers applying excise-tax compliant QR code stickers on each beverage produced. That data is fed live on SICPA/KRA servers so at any given time they know how many beverages have been produced. When consumption is low, distillers reduce production to avoid too much tax liability. Can the DCI table their evidence otherwise this harassment of local manufacturers must stop.

Exactly , people think running such a big alcohol plant is a joke, and esp when not in good terms with the men in power and going against their other cash cow - EABL , its like the banking industry, you get late in submitting your tax obligations you get called from KRA.
