Communication Authority of Kenya Board chair Mary Wambui Mungai and her daughter Purity Njoki got a reprieve on Tuesday as court allowed DPP to withdraw the Sh2.2 billion tax evasion case against them.

The prosecution told the anti-corruption court that KRA together with Ms Wambui and her daughter have concluded negotiations that commenced last year October. 

The two had been charged as directors of Purma Holdings Limited.
