KRA Commissioner General Githii Mburu

Githii Mburu, the Commissioner General of the Kenya Revenue Authority, stepped down before the completion of his five-year tenure.


Based on a statement given by the board of directors of the Authority, Mburu tendered his resignation in order to "pursue personal interests."


Beginning on the 23rd of February, Advocate Rispah Simiyu will take charge in an acting capacity after being assigned to the role.


As John Njiraini stepped down as head of the Authority in July 2019, Githii Mburu was appointed to take up his responsibilities there.


Before, he served as the head of intelligence at the KRA, where he was responsible for constructing a powerful intelligence-gathering infrastructure to catch tax cheats.


KRA's tax revenue generation increased from KES 1.607 trillion in FY2019–20 to KES 2.03 trillion in FY2021-22, marking the first time that it surpassed the KES 2.0 trillion mark. This growth occurred during Githii Mburu's tenure.


The taxable income collected so far in FY2022-23, which is 53.3 Percent of the total amount that is projected for the complete financial year, has reached KES 1,105 trillion.


Excise stamps of a new generation were issued by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) in December 2021, under the leadership of Githii Mburu, in accordance with the terms of the Excise Duty (Excisable Products Management System) Regulations of 2017.


Excise taxes now bring in around KES 105.4 billion on an annual basis on average.


During Mburu's term, the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) migrated from the Electronic Tax Register to the Tax Invoice Management System.


During Mburu's term, the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) migrated from the Electronic Tax Register to the Tax Invoice Management System. As a result of the shift, the KRA anticipates an increase in VAT revenues of at least 30 Percent.


Githii Mburu's tenure as Chief Government Agent (CG) during the COVID-19 outbreak will live on in history.


As part of either the COVID-19 round one stimulus plan, President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) and the Treasury to clear VAT refund outstanding of KES 10.0 billion during his tenure as head of state.


However, netizens had a contrary opinion saying the commissioner general may have been sacked indirectly.
