According to reports, detectives have been carrying out several arrests of tax evaders following a presidential directive that renewed the drive to catch tax evaders.
Last year, two individuals were arraigned in court over tax evasion that resulted in the loss of approximately Ksh7 billion in revenue.
The two, Kevalkumar Navin Maisura and Arti Jagdiesh Bakrania, are believed to be part of a syndicate of seven suspects who were involved in falsification of documents, including invoices, to claim fraudulent VAT input deductions.
