Great Win for Ruto's Ally Mary Wambui After Court's Ruling in Ksh 2.2 Billion Tax Evasion Case

The Sh2.2 Billion tax evasion case facing businesswoman Mary Wambui and her daughter Purity Mungai has been withdrawn.

The two are directors of Purma Holdings.Anti-corruption magistrate Felix Kombo withdrew the matter after the DPP informed the court that Kenya Revenue Authority had reached an agreement with the accused persons.

Kombo in acquitting Wambui and her daughter directed the cash bail of Sh50 million they had deposited in court be released to them.

The withdrawal comes days after His Excellency the Head of State president William Ruto appointed Mary Wambui as the Communication Authority of Kenya Board chairperson.

In January 2022, Wambui was also arraigned in court to answer to charges of illegally being in possession of firearms and 22 bullets for close to two years.

The move came as details emerged of how a senior government official, on December 7, 2021 night helped her sneak out of the Deputy President William Ruto-owned Weston Hotel where she had gone to hide to evade police who were pursuing her and her daughter Purity Njoki for allegedly defrauding the taxpayer Ksh2.2 billion through tax evasion.
