Government-owned SONY Sugar Company owns Land Rover KAA 315P that its whereabouts remain unknown.

Out of the 444 cars that authorities are targeting, 64 are Range Rovers, Mercedes Benz (94) and Toyotas (224). Other flagged makes include 22 Nissan, one Porsche, 26 Subarus, four Volkswagens, and two Volvos whose registration details are suspicious.

On July 31st this year, the DCI, through the officer in charge of Kenya Revenue Authority, issued a signal to all police stations in the country to impound the cars.

“A list of the attached vehicles are circulated in order to have them traced and detailed. The motor vehicles are suspected of having been fraudulently registered and they’re therefore unaccustomed since taxes in their regard have not been paid,” Peter Kiboro, the DCI KRA unit said.

KRA has intensified the crackdown on tax evaders who include businessmen, governors, and firms that were initially considered untouchable.

Last month, KRA Commissioner General James Mburu vowed to intensify a crackdown on tax cheats saying no one is being targeted as an individual.

“Kenyans should reject the narrative that KRA is fighting any individual or business. On the contrary, KRA has the additional responsibility of trade facilitation under which we support a business environment that is conducive for the growth of business, which further results in increased taxes. All we desire is that all eligible taxpayers make every effort to pay their rightful share of taxes. We must all contribute in an equitable manner to the development of our country.” KRA Boss Mburu said.
