President William Ruto's Government could be contemplating going after the Kenyatta Family's Offshore account where it is believed they have secretly kept part of their wealth.
National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung'wah gave the latest hint yet that Ruto's apparent purge on Former President Uhuru Kenyatta and Moi families could soon cross the border.
The Kikuyu Town MP said KRA has the responsibility of checking whether the wealth kept abroad was subjected to the requisite taxation procedure.
Ichung'wah said any wealth kept offshore must undergo mandatory taxation.
"Now, before they guide their online thugs on what propaganda to push, KRA is obligated to check if the Hundreds of Billions offshore in the PAandora papers had taxes paid here before being shipped offshore. Any income made here Legitimately must be taxed," Ichung'wah tweeted
The statement by the legislator comes a day after he said they had written to the treasury seeking to know a list of waivers effected from 2018 to date.
The move which pundits argue targets the Handshake brothers is expected to spark political tensions in the country at a time when Raila has lined up anti-government protests.
“This is to request information on tax reliefs, exemptions or waivers granted by your ministry to an individual, company, firm or institution (other than a religious or faith-based organisation or institutions, educational institutions or charitable organisations) from January 1, 2018, to date,” read part of Ichung'wah letter to the CS.
“Additionally, kindly provide information relating to tax incentives granted to firms or companies under contractual agreements entered into by the government for the implementation of various capital projects during the above period.”
The letter dated February 6 further wants the CS to furnish Ichung'wah with a statutory basis for the waivers, a list of individuals, companies, firms or institutions granted the tax relief, exemptions or waivers.
