DPP orders arrest of Keroche Brewieres owners -  Tabitha Karanja & her husband over tax evasion

Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has ordered the immediate arrest of Keroche Breweries CEO Tabitha Karanja.

Haji also ordered the arrest of Tabitha's husband, Joseph Karanja, who is also a director at the alcohol manufacturer.

The DPP said Kericho industries were wanted over tax fraud after their company evaded Sh14 billion tax.

The two become the latest billionaires in the alcohol manufacturing process to fall on the wrong side of the law over allegations of tax evasion.

Billionaire Humphrey Kariuki, who has ownership in Africa Spirits Ltd and Wines of the World Ltd (WOW), was on Monday arrested shortly after a Nairobi court freed him on a Sh11 million cash bail.

State authorities had been pursuing Kariuki for over a week before he surrendered at the Milimani Law Courts on Monday morning.
