Last week, the couple pleaded not guilty to ten counts of tax evasion charges and were released on bail.

According to their charge sheet, they were accused of being involved in fraud by posting incorrect statements on excise duty by reducing the company’s tax liability.

Consequently, Chief magistrate Francis Andayi directed Mr Muigai to post Ksh2 million bail and Ms Karanja was to deposit Ksh10 million, and a further Ksh15 million bail on behalf of the company.

In her defense, Ms Karanja said Keroche has existed for 22 years during which it has gained and solidified a reputation of a champion of local entrepreneurship.
