Jubilee financier Mary Wambui Mungai and her daughter Purity Njoki Mungai has finally surrendered to the authorities after a long night drama with the police.

Wambui and her daughter have surrendered at Milimani Law Court alongside their lawyer Nelson Havi.

They presented themselves before Anti-Corruption Magistrate Felix Kombo.

The two have been on the police radar after they failed to appear in court to answer charges of failing to pay tax.

The two were charged alongside Purma holdings Limited who was the first accused in the case.

The accused persons' lawyers - Havi and Sylvanus Osoro - said that they presented them before the court for the case mentioning purposes.

Havi claimed that they could not have done so as soon as possible as one of their clients, Mary Wangui was feeling unwell.

"Reason, why they could not have presented themselves earlier, is because Mary was unwell and she is still unwell but upon being instructed yesterday I advised both of them we appear in court today," Havi told the court.

"Second reason we are here is to have the accused persons take plea on their capacity and for Purma holding. We are ready to take a plea," he added.

The suspects are facing eight counts relating to failure to pay taxes worth Ksh2.5 billion through their company, Purma. Wangui will, however, take a plea on behalf of Purma.

The accused have, however, denied all the eight charges levelled against them.
