Kisumu Asian fraudsters unmasked – Weekly Citizen



A recent order by Inspector General of Police Noor Gabow for a nationwide police crackdown on illegal and c o n t r a b a n d goods caused panic among u n d e r w o r l d Asians operating in Nyanza and Western region.

The Asians disguised as b u s i n e s s m e n have over the years boasted of full protection from the crooked officials from the Kenya Revenue Authority and Kenya Police Service.

Kenya Revenue Authority Commissioner General Githii Mburu is said to be keenly following up the matter.



Weekly Citizen has established that now on the radar of the country’s security intelligence are two Asians with business interest in Western region and a car dealer in Kisumu.

Gabow directed all police officers across the country to maintain vigilance in their areas of responsibility and to carry out intelligence-led crackdowns to combat all forms of tax evasion.

The police boss lamented that some unscrupulous taxpayers’ devised ways to cheat and evade paying taxes, badly affecting projected revenue generation targets.

The KRA has also been urged to launch investigations into the operations of Sammy Traders over tax evasion claims.

Local KRA officers and police have been asked to investigate the operations of a car dealer said to be embroiled in a tax evasion racket.

The proprietor of Sammy Traders is also linked to fraudulent schemes in which car buyers are lured into an arrangement that has seen many lose millions of shillings At the centre of debate is the respective immigration status of the four officers listed as the directors of the troubled company.

Previously, an insider approached Weekly Citizen with an explosive claims supported by alleged document evidence detailing dark activities by the Asian.

The said documents are in our possession.

Inside sources further confided in Weekly Citizen how Sammy Traders Limited has consistently underdeclared and grossly omitted income derived from its business and services, a racket that has dealt the KRA a big blow in its attempts to collect revenue.

Apparently, they have been escaping raids by KRA on eliminating tax evasion in the country.

According to a highly placed source, some crook officers from the KRA are said to be part of the scheme and that explains how Sammy Traders has successfully managed to evade the investigators over the years.

Sammy Traders Limited is located along Angawa Avenue, Kisumu. The company boasts as the Kenya’s largest automotive marketplace, featuring more than 800 cars.

They sell a wide range of new and used cars on cash and hire purchase terms.

Efforts to reach the company’s management for comment proved fruitless as they did not respond by press time
