Socialite cum business woman Huddah Monroe has expressed displeasure in the manner which, KRA officials have been treating her.
In a series of updates on her Instagram page, Ms Monroe alleged that some KRA officials have been on her case demanding non-existent documents and bribes.
“Few young officials like harassing people, business and companies. They ask for documents that them, themselves know nothing about. I will never in my entire life bribe. I play by the book because I’m not a criminal! I’m not selling drugs. You ask for non-existent documents, after submitting you claim to have lost them, then we drop them again like we have no lives; just want y’all young boys and girls at KRA to know I am cut from a different cloth and bribe is not in my vocabulary”
“Yall been playing with people for too long. Some of you need to be exposed, seriously beaten up and expelled from Kenya for giving people who are trying to improve the countries economy a hard time no valid claims” shared Huddah Monroe.
Pay your Taxes
The Huddah cosmetics boss went ahead to advice all business owners to ensure they abide by the law to avoid clashing with the government.
“I tell everyone before you start a business make sure you know all the rules and regulations. And most importantly pay your taxes. And make sure you don’t mess with anything concerning the Government. So you think I’m the one to give advice and not follow through. I like to do things the right was coz it gives me peace of mind. And I’m not a coward coz I’m a law abiding citizen” added Huddah Monroe.
Ms Monroe’s outcry comes at a time Kenya Revenue Authority has been hunting down tax evaders. Just the other day, KRA disclosed that it will prosecute 600 individuals this year for tax evasion related cases.
