Purity Njoki Mungai and businesswoman Mary Wambui were the targets of a Ksh. 2.2 billion lawsuit that was dismissed.
This followed the DPP’s request that the Section 204 charges be withdrawn.
The two men’s lawyers, Adrian Kamotho and Nelson Havi, did not raise any objections to the withdrawal request.
The court was informed that Wambui had been impacted by the case, and that the outcome was favorable.
Attorney Kamotho stated, “We are in accord with the given that this is an issue that should not have reached the stage…of prosecution…it is an agony she has had to undergo a lot of hardships, including the denial of certain rights.”
Following the successful compounding of charges on December 6th of last year and the subsequent payment of the penalties imposed by the authority, the court was informed that KRA sought to withdraw the matter.
The commissioner is claimed to have given his approval for the compounding of the aforementioned offenses in a letter dated December 21.
Eight counts of evading taxes were brought against the two between 2014 and 2016.
