Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives have seized a Range Rover belonging to controversial politician, Steve Mbogo.

In a post seen by Pulselive.co.ke, DCI announced that the high-end vehicle was impounded on Friday over tax evasion and had number plates that were fraudulently obtained.

The statement further revealed that according to preliminary investigations indicated that the car's number plate - KCL 830 A - was found to belong to a Probox.

The statement read that “Detectives have today afternoon recovered a Range Rover from Mr. Steve Mbogo for the offence of evading duty and fraudulently obtaining Number Plates. Upon carrying out preliminary investigations, the vehicle number plates were found to belong to a probox.”

The seizure came in the same day that Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) impounded two high-end vehicles at the port of Mombasa that were destined for Kampala, Uganda.

KRA divulged that the two vehicles- a Range Rover Sport and a BMW X5 had been imported from the United Kingdom by one Solomon Kola with the consignee listed as Alex Namanya of Kampala, Uganda.

Importation documents indicated that the container in which the two high-end vehicles were found had one Mercedes Benz A180 and a BMW 125I Sport in what is suspected to be a tax-evasion plot.

Kelvin Safari, an officer at KRA revealed that “upon scanning of the container, a used Range Rover Sport HSE SDV6 and a Used BMW X5 were found”.

In recent days, KRA has moved in to eliminate tax evasion at the port where fraudsters have in the past wrongly declared imported items, denying the tax payr billions of shillings in revenue.

On March 7, KRA impounded three high-end vehicles that were destined for Kampala with Interpol confirming that the vehicles had been stolen from the UK.
