Here is When the Court Will Issue Ruling on Ksh 2.2 Billion Tax Evasion Case Against Mary Mungai

The fate of the Chairperson of the Communications Authority (CA) Mary Wambui Mungai who is facing charges of tax evasion of Sh2.2 billion will be known on January 10, 2023.

This is following the request of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji to be given 30 days to evaluate all the evidence in the case where Mrs. Wambui was accused together with her daughter.

Through lawyer Judy Thongori, the DPP told the chief magistrate of the Anti-Corruption Court that she has not completed evaluating the evidence in the case in order to reach a decision.

"The DPP has not completed reviewing and evaluating all the evidence in this Sh2.2 billion tax evasion case. He has asked for 30 days," Ms Thongori told Mr Kombo.

The judge was told the DPP received a letter from KRA on November 23, 2022 asking it to settle the case out of court.

"Despite receiving a letter from KRA to settle the case out of court, we have not yet contacted DPP Noordin Haji to get further instructions. I am asking for 30 days to complete the discussions about this case," Ms. Thongori pleaded with Mr. Kombo.

Ms Wambui has been charged with her daughter Purity Njoki and their company - Purma Holding Limited - for tax evasion.

Wambui, Njoki and Purma are facing charges of tax evasion between 2014-2016.

Mr Kombo accepted the DPP's request and ordered Ms Wambui's case to be mentioned again on January 10, 2023.

Although the lawyers of Wambui and his daughter, who are Nelson Havi and Adrian Kamotho, did not oppose the request, they expressed their shock that the DPP is still thinking about the issue of resolving the case outside the court.
