Woman in court over tax swoop on CS Wamalwa’s luxury car

The initial owner of the Range Rover Vogue belonging to Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, which was presented for inspection for being fraudulently registered, is among 11 motor owners who have moved to court to challenge the ongoing crackdown of tax fraud on imported vehicles.

Ms Grace Wambui Waraki and 10 others claim that they only became aware of the unpaid tax enforcement deadline on Monday, May 16 on a newspaper advertisement and by 11am May 17, some of their vehicles had been seized.

They claim that their vehicles were subject of unpaid tax due to the short notice and that their attempts to counter check the alleged outstanding monies did not bear any fruit since they were ignored at Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) offices.

They have sued KRA’s Commissioner General as well as the Enforcement and Investigations commissioner.

They want orders issued stopping the seizure of their properties or interfering with their possessions in any way.
