Nairobi, Kenya: Water CS Eugene Wamalwa’s Range Rover among 121 vehicles deregistered by KRA; the number plates are believed to have been acquired illegally.
A vehicle owned by Water Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa had been seized after it was found with a fake number plate in a crackdown that was carried out by tax KRA. He is now the biggest victim of a complex tax evasion syndicate involving importers, clearing agents and revenue authority agents, some whose vehicles have also been impounded.
Some 124 high-end cars with unpaid taxes worth over Sh300 million has also been placed on the wanted list. Kenya Revenue Authority officials said the CS’ black luxury vehicle, a Range Rover V8 model manufactured in 2015, has a number plate belonging to a truck.
