Officials from KRA have raised concerns on body's inability to perform their day to day functions as state by the Constitution after president Ruto and his deputy Gachagua.
The Kenya Kwanza team lead by Dr William Ruto had promised Kenyans to revive the economy as soon as they take power and repeatedly accused the government of victimizing leaders who had a different political views.
Sources at the Kenya Revenue authority revealed that they have slowed down the crackdowns on illegal and counterfeit products which has already affected the market.
At Nyamakima, a spot check established that a packet of 10 pairs of AA20 size (R6) Eveready batteries was selling at Sh400. Normally, the same pack should cost about Sh1,000.
The order by President Ruto when he was speaking at Maua Stadium in Meru County, that the taxman should not use force, destroy goods or close down businesses to get taxes owed has greatly affected them.
Consequently Gachagua's orders to KRA while addressing crowds in Mombasa, where he told the taxman to adopt friendly ways of dealing with tax disputes has slowed down the operations at the taxman's office.
