Calif raided by KRA over taxes

By | February 20th 2009

The home of Genge, Calif Records was raided by officers said to belong to the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) and City Council. Just like any other enterprises, music stables are expected to remit taxes to KRA annually and Calif is said to have defaulted on their remittance.

According to our sources, the officers visited the studio late last week and raided the studio ordering its closure. The officers are said to have been in a convoy of seven cars, some of which are said to have belonged to the City Council.

"We have been remitting our taxes and I know Homeboyz have also been paying theirs. Basically all studios should pay their taxes on annual basis," said Banda of Ogopa DJs, when asked if the raid had also affected them.

"We have a clean bill of record," he added. But efforts to get a word from Calif were in vain. However, sources close to Calif confirmed the incident had indeed taken place.
