Taking to her Instagram she wrote,
It doesn’t matter what position you are in, nobody should ever watch their mother go through harassment. #iStandWithKeroche #iStandWithTabitha
The couple (Tabitha and Joseph Karanja) responded to DPP saying the Sh14 billion was baseless. In a phone interview with Citizen, she said,
I FEEL I AM BEING UNFAIRLY TARGETED. I HAVE DONE MY JOB FOR 22 YEARS, PAYING TAXES AND CREATING JOBS.

Below are some of the reactions from Anerlisa’s post
pretty_lacey_things:Tabitha Karanja remains a role model ever since I could understand the concept of one.
She has been through so much harassment as a woman trying to make it in a male-dominated industry, 1 and as a competitor to one of the leading brewers in the country.
She’s a tough cookie. She’ll get through this.
zack_njuguna: How do you evade tax amounting 14b?and for how long? The company has been in existence and reports annually and renews licences annually. Something isn’t adding up. Unhealthy competition.
maryjully254_255:Thats true dear….. This is harassment….. Walikua wapi hio miaka yotee….. Si kwanza walipe deni ya wachina na walipe workers….
shirugathuku: Sometimes God will make you go through tough situations to test your faith and for his name to be glorified. This is just a passing storm have faith in Him.
