Back in 2019, Phyllis Ngirita was charged with Sh20 million tax evasion at a Nairobi court.
Phyllis Ngirita, trading as Njewanga Enterprises, faced four counts where she allegedly failed to submit the Sh7 million and Sh13 million taxes in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
Appearing before chief magistrate Martha Mutuku in a Milimani court, the accused denied all the charges. Through lawyer Evans Ondieki, Ngirita sought for lenient bail and bond terms claiming her family has been struggling and has even been going hungry.
She said her son has been out of school because of fee arrears because all her bank accounts are currently frozen. The accused informed Mutuku that the son, whose father is German, had been urging her to change his name so he can study comfortably.
According to reports, it is alleged that a warrant of arrest has been issued against Phyllis Ngirita for not appearing in court for hearing of her Sh20 million tax evasion charges.
