DPP Has Today Revealed The Reason Behind Dropping Of Mary Wambui's Ksh2.5Billion Case

Earlier today, the director of public prosecutions, Noordin Haji, said that the case against the tycoon and board chair of the Communication Authority of Kenya had been abandoned.

The tycoon, who is well known to millions of Kenyans since she has been at the epicenter of scandal for the past few years, was charged by the Kenya Revenue Authority with tax fraud allegations totaling 2.5 billion shillings.

According to the reports we have, the billionaire had already appeared in court with her daughter Purity Wangui to answer for the accusations leveled against her.

Today in the afternoon, the Director of Public Prosecutions explained why he dismissed Mary Wambui's 2.5 billion Kenyan Shilling tax evasion case.

The charges against Mary Wambui were subsequently dropped after the Director of Public Prosecutions stated in the statement that the fines levied on her had been paid.

According to the reports we have, the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions indicates that a settlement was made on December 6 of last year.

As a result, Mary Wambui, a billionaire, is no longer facing any prosecution for allegedly evading taxes.

President William Ruto recently chose Mary Wambui to serve as the head of Kenya's communication authority.
