Anerlisa Muigai’s world is in the throes of distress. The cause of the normally bubbly Keroche heiress’ emotional state is the news that her parents are been investigated for tax evasion by the government.
This state has forced the Nero Water CEO to appeal to a helping hand and none other than from the main man himself, President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Anerlisa’s appeal came moments after Ms Karanja and her husband, Joseph Karanja, were arrested on Thursday afternoon. DCI officers nabbed the couple, together with the company’s board members, at the gate of their factory in Naivasha.
Miss Muigai penned her message to the president asking him to protect her family as they are entrepreneurs.
Her message is below;
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 #
The message was met with mixed reactions from her followers with some telling her that it was karma for those who voted for Uhuru’s government at the polls. They told her to pray that her parents should pay their fair share of taxes as Kenyans are doing themselves.
Others urged her to stand strong and bemoaned the fact that the ‘greedy’ government was going for entrepreneurs.
Funny thing is I don’t think Anerlisa will have much help from the Head-of-State.
My reason being that the government has embarked on a campaign to not only deal with corruption but also target tax evaders.
This week, the CBK revealed that Ksh. 25 billion had been deposited in banks by Kenyans after it warned that hiding untaxed money in their homes.
