Kenyans React As List of Businesses That Reopened in 2022 After Closure by KRA

Hundreds of Kenyans resumed their jobs after over 20 companies that were closed by KRA were reopened in 2022.Among them were Africa Spirits owned by billionaire businessman Humphrey Kariuki and Tabitha Karanja's Keroche Breweries Ltd.

"The issue of closing factories for taxpayers who are suffering is a thing of the past because it is foolish," DP Rigathi Gachagua said.

With the Kenya Kwanza government’s move to support small businesses financially, Ruto urged those who will benefit from the ‘Hustlers Fund’ to remember to pay taxes so that they may be in a position to run their businesses well in the financial year that will follow.His sentiments come days after KRA moved to court accusing Keroche Breweries of failing to honour tax payment agreements which informed the reopening of the Naivasha-based brewer in July.

KRA has issued agency notices to the company’s bankers and instead of correctly notifying the banks of the Sh30m we owe, it gave a wrong figure of Sh558.7m,” she said.She noted that this had occasioned the company prejudice adding that their efforts to secure a hearing from the top-level management at the KRA remained unsuccessful.
