A new regime began at KRA when a new boss stepped in early this year and his main mission is to pursue tax evaders in the country. This has led to the arrest of various high profile individuals such as Keroche Breweries CEO Tabitha Karanja and billionaire businessman Humphrey Kariuki.
It seems that socialite Huddah Monroe has recently experienced the wrath of KRA officials. In a series of updates on her Instagram account she alleged that some KRA officials have been on her case demanding various non-existent documents and bribes. She posted:
“Few young officials like harassing people, business and companies. They ask for documents that them themselves know nothing about. I will never in my entire life bride. I play by the book because I’m not a criminal! I’m not selling drugs. You ask for non-existent documents, after submitting you claim to have lost them, then we drop them again like we have no lives; just want y’all young boys and girls at KRA to know I am cut from a different cloth and Bride is not in my vocabulary”
“Yall been playing with people for too long. Some of you need to be exposed, seriously beaten up and expelled from Kenya for giving people who are trying to improve the countries economy a hard time no valid claims”
“I tell everyone before you start a business make sure you know all the rules and regulations. And most importantly pay your taxes. And make sure you don’t mess with anything concerning the Government. So you think I’m the one to give advice and not follow through. I like to do things the right was coz it gives me peace of mind. And I’m not a coward coz I’m a law-abiding citizen”
