KRA Reveals What Is Happening After Ruto And Gachagua's Orders

KRA officials have voiced concerns that the body is unable to carry out its day-to-day duties as required by the Constitution following the resignations of President Ruto and his Deputy, Gachagua.

After being elected, the Kenya Kwanza team led by Dr William Ruto had constantly accused the government of persecuting political opponents and promised Kenyans a rapid economic recovery.

The Kenya Revenue Authority's slowing of its assault on illegal and counterfeit goods has already had an impact on the market, according to authority sources.

Based on a random price check, we know that in Nyamakima, Sh400 will get you ten pairs of Eveready AA20 size (R6) batteries. The same pack, in a normal market, would cost roughly Sh1,000.

President Ruto's directive, delivered at Maua Stadium in Meru County, that the tax collector not resort to violence, destruction of property, or closure of businesses in order to collect taxes owed has had a profound effect on the local economy.

So, Gachagua's directions to KRA during his public speech in Mombasa, in which he urged the taxman to take a more conciliatory approach to resolving tax disputes, have hampered the efficiency of the tax office.
