Kenyans React After KRA Announced That They Collected Ksh 2.03 Trillion

The tax collection body in Kenya is cebrating after it has made history. This is after the body has collected the largest amount of tax since establishment, something which is attributed to total tax compliance.

According to Mr. Githii, the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) Commissioner Genra, domestic taxes collected Ksh.1.297 trillion against a target of Ksh.1.267 trillion while Customs and Border Control collected Ksh.728.530 billion against the set target of Ksh.702.823 Billion.

According to Githii, the revenue collection of Ksh.2.031 Trillion is the highest which KRA has ever collected per financial year.

In Kenya’s history, KRA’s annual revenue collection has for the first time hit and surpassed the Ksh.2 trillion mark after revenue collection tripled from Ksh.707.36 billion in FY2011/12 to Ksh.2.031 Trillion in FY2021/22.

When this information was posted on Facebook by citizen digital, many of the Kenyans were agitated and few congratulated KRA for the achievement. However, many said the achievement by the tax body is at the expense of Kenyanys since the rates of taxation are so high. Some Kenyans went ahead and told KRA that the achievement is nothing to brag about.
