Anerlisa Muigai, daughter of embattled Keroche Breweries owners Tabitha and Joseph Karanja, has penned an emotional note to President Uhuru Kenyatta following the arrest of her parents.
The Keroche bosses were Thursday arrested at their Naivasha-based brewery where they had been holed up for over 12 hours since Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji issued orders for their arrest.
Taking to Instagram, Anerlisa said “everyday our local entrepreneurs are being fought”, further pleading with President Kenyatta “to intervene and help/protect us all in businesses.”
“We chose you as our President…We trust and believe that you will do something about it. Thank You. #BuyKenya #BuildKenya,” wrote the Nero Company CEO.

Dear Our President (Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta) I am writing in regards to our local entrepreneurs. I am humbly requesting you to intervene and help/protect us all in businesses. We chose you as our President. Everyday our local entrepreneurs are being fought. We trust and believe that you will do something about it. Thank You. #BuyKenya #BuildKenya # Regards Anerlisa Muigai.
Anerlisa had earlier on also taken to the social networking platform to post a photo of herself alongside her mother as an expression of solidarity.
“It doesn’t matter what position you are in, nobody should ever watch their mother go through harassment. #iStandWithKeroche#iStandWithTabitha,” she wrote.
DPP Haji on Wednesday ordered the arrest of Mr. and Mrs. Karanja over alleged evasion of taxes amounting to Ksh.14.4 billion.
