KRA has recalled its official at Mumias Sugar Company following an ethanol export scam through which the revenue agency lost millions of shillings. The official is expected to shed light on the ongoing investigations in which top managers at the factory are said to have diverted ethanol meant for export into the local market, thus evading millions of shillings in tax.

 

KRA has also been conducting audits in Mumias since last month when claims of the ethanol diversion were first reported. Company chairman Mr. Dan Ameyo said investigations are still ongoing on how the managers colluded with local buyers and customs officers to fake documents and divert ethanol destined for Uganda and Tanzania into domestic market.
