The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) is mandated to collect taxes on behalf of the government of Kenya.
However, what if tax is stolen at the point of collection and KRA goes on to lie to the public that they’ve missed their tax target?; how would we verify such information?
KRA has been a cash cow for powerful people since the ICC criminals UhuRuto came to power. In fact, the theft of taxpayers money in public institutions is not a secret anymore.
In August last year, Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti revealed that KRA lost Kshs. 100 billion in a short period of six months.
“In the past six months alone, Kenyans may have lost about Sh100 billion in tax evasion and sale of substandard goods,” Kinoti said.
The scam also fingered employees of Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and Kenya Bureau of Standards (Kebs) officials.
The rogue officials were said to be colluding with unscrupulous traders to facilitate false declarations to deny the taxman requisite taxes such as import duty. They also allow in counterfeits in exchange for kickbacks.
Has anyone been prosecuted? The problem with Kenya is that no one is prosecuted even for such heinous economic crimes.
KRA staff are a rotten bunch, embolden by UhuRuto. Today (11th March, 2019), two were arrested by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives soliciting for a Kshs 1 million bribe in Kirinyaga to facilitate tax evasion.
Below is the ANONYMOUS tip sent to CNYAKUNDI.COM:
KRA Kilindini Customs Boss Abdi Malik Hussein has been leading a mega smuggling ring where millions of shillings in taxes have been lost.
The estimated loss so far is over Kshs. 500 million. Malik, in collusion with a top Somali smuggler based in Nairobi allows containers carrying very expensive items like milk powder, perfumes, textiles and electronics to be released without paying taxes.
For each container Malik is paid Kshs. 600,000.
Approximately, over 150 containers have been smuggled to date.
Malik colludes with two companies of the Somali smuggler registered as Bildad & Muzdalifa.
In order to carry out this heist, Malik orders the KRA Scanner office to substitute images of dirty containers showing only matatus inside. He threatens officers with transfers if they dont follow his orders.
The proceeds of crime have made Malik a multi Millionaire owning 60 flats in Kiserian and Ngong all hidden under his two wives names and children. He brags to be very close to Customs Commissioner Kevin Safari in public as his classmate and his pointman in Mombasa.
Malik likes to sleep with female officers placing them in good areas collecting bribes for him.
Commissioner General Njiraini fears Malik and has failed to remove him despite many cries from members of the public and staff.
