Former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta has broken her silence following the recent tax evasion allegations against her family.
Mama Ngina, 89, dismissed the allegations as false and challenged the government to seize and auction her property if she has indeed evaded paying any taxes.
“I am surprised to hear some people say that others do not pay taxes. The government has its own system of how things are handled,” said Mama Ngina, who spoke in Swahili.
She further termed the allegations as a desperate attempt by a section of politicians to politicize tax matters and peddle lies so they can be seen to be working.
“Paying taxes, whether it is income tax or any other tax, is mandatory for everyone, big or small, to pay according to their ability and income. This is not a matter for discussion in newspapers, public rallies, or on TV. If you do not pay taxes, you go to court. That is the law,” she added.
The former First Lady spoke on Saturday while addressing members of the public during the opening of the Tewa Catholic Church in Mpeketoni, Lamu County, which she helped to build.
“If you do not pay what you are supposed to pay, your belongings must be auctioned. So there is no need… there is no need to tarnish others’ names and say that they are working, running the country. No,” Mama Ngina said.
“Nobody should be asked to pay what they are supposed to pay. If it is me who has failed to pay taxes for even one year, my property should be auctioned to pay for the taxes. So there is no need for this kind of politics… and people know the truth, they just want to mention names.”
A section of Kenya Kwanza leaders led by Nyandarua Senator John Methu recently demanded an audit on a number of business deals by the Kenyatta family to establish whether they evaded taxes.
The demand followed President Ruto and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s pledge to pursue those who have been avoiding taxes in the previous regimes.
“This country is not the animal farm where some are more equal than others, we are going to have a society where every citizen carries their fair share of our burden to raise our taxes,” Ruto said on Monday.
They need to move her husband ,Kamau , to his ancestral land.
Jomo Kenyatta real name was Johnstone Kamau.
In 2005 I asked(at CORO fm conversation) Ndigwa,a former lands minister during expired jambazi Kibaki’s era how expired murderer Kenyatta grabbed part of parliament land while dead.He promised to consult the former lands commissioners,majambazi Gachanja and Waita then answer the question later.Eighteen years later,the three thugs are still alive but Ndigwa has never answered my simple question.
Mama Ngina Kenyatta has spoken! Like death, taxes are mandatory for all. I hope Multi- corporations, big fish corrupt kenyans and the tycoon corrupt Indians who pay bribes to evade taxes are listening. You refuse to pay- auction, and jail no exception!
She knows She does NOT really Own the Property(s). Grabbed land, Grabbed taxPayers Money, Grabbed COASTAL Resorts; you Name them.
The truth shall always set the facts straight, and especially when matters of any kind are handled with dignity and respect. It seems that Ruto lacks tact when dealing with Kenyans.
How is her age coming in the picture? It shouldn't!!!!. Do you see ages of people who are put in news? Look at her beauty. In fact, if had a chance I would take her out on a date because I find her very attractive. So ugly and very jealousy author mind your own business and leave Mama Ngina alone!!!
She's been smoked out from hide out!.." I can't breath, i Can't breathe, please!!."..🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂..its has been overdue mama!!....joyride is over, your Rao puppet didn't make it to protect the family lotting, ..pay tax like anybody else!!..or move to Caribbean where you stash all the assets
Thug Ngina’s family properties,including their UNDERWEARS were all looted from Kenyans.Her taxation should be audited as the said exempt law is unconstitutional.All of them should charged with ABUSE OF OFFICE offense if they sneaked such a law to benefit themselves.All these demons should be stoned to death if they have evaded taxation.
Ruto ni Mkora wakiwa na Gachagua. CAN THEY SHOW US THEIR TAXES FIRST? NEWS ITEM NOWADAYS- Gachagua receives hundreds of millions back... Next news item... Mama in North Kenya has not lit a fire in her kitchen for 4 days lack of food- abject poverty. Alaaniwe yule atakaye gusa mali ya umma, mali ya raia, mali ya mahospitali, mashule na mabarabara, mali ya maji. Walaaniwe hadi na watoto wao seven generations hadi watubu na warudishe mali ya umma
That is why I said given chance I would ask her for a date. She looks so young and attractive and she has not bleached her skin like so many in Kenya. She is free to date whoever she want!!!!
We should take her by her words and auction all the damn grabbed land, and stolen property which is about 99%! In fact, put it in an endowment fund that will help the decedents of the Mau Mau warriors whom they destroyed on behalf of their masters in Britain!!! Fack, let’s get it done ✅
Ok, hopefully she should start by telling us how they acquired the said properties.
Whether they pay taxes or not, what Kenyans want is transparency, period.
I will leave it at that for now.
There's more to this family than just tax, the millions of acres they hold were never paid for in the first place. They should start by paying rental compensation for all the years they have been occupying the land illegally acquired from Kenyans. These are the true neo-colonial settlers.
Tell them shosho. If they believe you have not
Paid taxes, let them take you to court so that you can be auctioned. Why are they telling us mere Kenyans? To-do?
