Minutes before the arrest, Naivasha Chief Magistrate Kennedy Bidali had issued search and arrest warrants for the entrepreneurs who had locked themselves in their offices located in Naivasha, along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway. Once the order was served, the two walked out of their officers as the company's distributors, who had arrived at the beer factory hours earlier, cheered them. The couple will be arraigned today to face tax evasion charges. Also arrested during the raid were two security managers from the company who were driven to Naivasha Police Station.

Speaking on phone, Mr Karanja said he is a law-abiding citizen and is ready to face any charges. Karanja, who returned to the country recently after spending a month in the UK undergoing treatment, exuded confidence that it is only a matter of time before the truth is known. “This is not about tax but about our recently launched products but the truth will set us free as we have not defaulted in paying taxes as alleged,” he said.
