Eden House Group (Eden Lalapanzi) was in the new last year for the wrong reason. The rehabilitation centre was closed by the Nairobi County Government for ‘occupying a grabbed public land’.
The governor, Mike ‘the Kevese’ Sonko in a statement, said the organisation was issued a fake allotment letter by senior officials in Governor Evans Kidero’s administration.
What next after land grabbing?
Ideally Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) don’t pay corporate tax but are required by law to pay other statutory deductions from employees such as Pay As You Earn (PAYE) etc.
A source at EDEN HOUSE claims that the NGO doesn’t remit the taxes deducted to the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).
I would like to bring to light activities of an NGO that I believe has engaged in suspicious deals for the last 12 years.
Eden House Group is operational and has been evading taxes as its linked to some top guys. The NGO hides behind the face of rehabilitation and treatment services but engaging in tax evasion, fraud and money laundering.
They are in 5 different locations namely, Kabete, Likoni, Parklands and Diani; and behind the veil of helping and PR activities for example that of Conjestina. Many Vulnerable parents and people in need of help have suffered under them.
They mask behind a white mzungu Justin Farrar and a local Boniface Ndirangu.
A former employee, a doctor, whom I knew closely was frustrated to an extent of falling into depression and suicide after she was dismissed when she confronted the management about the activities of the company which she deemed were not in line with ethical standards.
Statutory deductions like PAYE, NSSF and NHIF have never been met to any of their employees
Many people have suffered, giving them a platform will help.
Eden House Group is a shithole
