Wambui and her daughter hit the headlines on Tuesday after the Director of Public Prosecutions withdrew a case involving 2.2 Billion tax evasion.
This came after she was appointed the chairperson of the Communications Authority Of Kenya. Following this, she joined president Ruto's allies who had their cases dropped after their appointment. Among the list are deputy president Rigathi Gachagua and Agriculture Cabinet Secretary, Mithika Linturi.
Wambui and her daughter were able to enjoy freedom after being pursued by KRA for a while. They were accused of evading tax between 2014 and 2019 through their company. According to the report, she had unpaid taxes from the billions she earned through the government tenders to supply boots, uniforms and cereals to the military and other departments.
Defence Lawyer Nelson Havi and his co, Adrian Kamotho said that the matter that faced Wambui and her daughter should not have reached such levels. They also said that their clients were subjected to difficulties and denial of several rights since they were arraigned in court. They also agreed with the decision of the DPP to withdraw the charges.
