Mulleys Supermarket in Machakos County is in the eye of a storm over alleged widespread tax evasion fraud claims. On Friday last week, the retailer closed down its branch situated at the Machakos bus stage in an effort to ward off the instigators from accessing their books of accounts.
The pioneer locally owned supermarket in Machakos was at one time one of the fastest-growing retailers in the region but seems to have fallen back on tax returns, sources have revealed. Top KRA investigators have been tasked to probe the chain’s weekly returns at a local bank.
The supermarket is conveniently located opposite the said bank on the way to Machakos town center. According to sources, KRA is probing claims that senior managers at the bank are involved in a massive cover-up in the tax evasion racket. KRA Anti-fraud unit and ICT experts are also investigating a senior Nairobi based auditor who has been blacklisted as a “tax scammer” aiding several firms to evade paying taxes.
The retailer operates another branch at Mulolongo and is said to owe KRA up to Kshs 300 million in taxes during the period of 2019-2021. The supermarket stocks goods ranging from home furniture, Electronics, Home appliances, Clothes, Home crafts, Farm fresh, Home use products, wines and spirits products.
The supermarket also retails all basic essential commodities like maize flour, milk, bread, snacks, and domestic cutlery.
