Prominent radio personality Maina Kageni has praised Keroche boss Tabitha Karanja saying she is made of steel. This is because she has managed to maintain a strong demeanour at a time when her family is experiencing some serious turbulence and challenges.
Sharing a photo of himself and Tabitha, Maina penned,
‘THE TRUE DEFINITION OF A STRONG WOMAN!!!! THEY’RE TRYING TO BREAK HER BUT THEY HAVE NO IDEA THAT THIS WOMAN IS MADE OF STEEL!!! TABITHA KARANJA, YOU ARE LITERALLY INSPIRATION PERSONIFIED…. #TBT AT A KEROCHE EVENT….’
For those in the dark, Tabitha Karanja has in the past months been under pressure from the Kenyan government in regards to alleged tax evasion.
Tabitha Karanja and her husband Joseph Karanja were in August 2019 arraigned in court to answer to up to 10 charges related to tax evasion.
Mrs Karanja spent the night at the Muthaiga Police Station but her husband was released on the intervention of his doctors.
This prompted their daughter Anerlisa to write an open letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“DEAR OUR PRESIDENT (UHURU MUIGAI KENYATTA)
I AM WRITING IN REGARDS TO OUR LOCAL ENTREPRENEURS. I AM HUMBLY REQUESTING YOU TO INTERVENE AND HELP/PROTECT US ALL IN BUSINESSES. WE CHOSE YOU AS OUR PRESIDENT.
EVERY DAY OUR LOCAL ENTREPRENEURS ARE BEING FOUGHT. WE TRUST AND BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THANK YOU. #BUYKENYA #BUILDKENYA,” SHE WROTE
The case is still ongoing.
