The Kenya Revenue Authority is yet to probe OPPO Kenya Tax evasion, as exposed by this site, we can confirm.
Usually, when a case of tax evasion is exposed, the KRA officials usually swing into action and act. But when it comes to Chinese cartels, these officials usually go mute just like the OPPO tax evasion cartel we exposed recently.
Many Kenya Revenue Authority officials cannot be able to explain the source of their wealth because they collude with corruption cartels to evade taxes. This site will soon serialize a list of KRA officials that own properties and immense wealth that does not match their salaries.
Many Kenyans have raised concerns about Kenya Revenue Authority corruption that has greatly hampered tax collection. Many KRA officials are stinking rich from the corruption that has seen a decline in revenue collection.
KRA is actually collecting more than is required but a bigger chunk is being channelled into pockets of senior commissioners and top managers.
In 2012-13 during the era of Joseph Waweru as Commissioner-General, a KRA officer in charge of Mombasa Port one Kamau Ngang’a allegedly ordered the release of 500 containers of imported first grade rice from Pakistan without having to subject the importer, a Mombasa businessman and owner of Nyali Cinemax and proprietor of the Mall that houses Nyali Nakumatt and a close business associate of controversial tycoon Ali Punjani to pay any duty for the 500 containers of rice.
The government lost close to Sh2 billion in taxes though later on, junior officers manning gates at the Mombasa Port were victimised and charged for the offence when auditors discovered the rice had been released unofficially.
The move by the corrupt manager set an example to others who are now colluding with Chinese cartels and people like Vimal Shah that are evading taxes ranging into billions.
The move by KRA to ignore the OPPO tax evasion is evidence that the OPPO cartels are oiling the top KRA leadership not to act on the case, despite mountains of evidence confirming that they are engaging in money-laundering and massive tax evasion.
