I will not spare even KRA Commissioner General, JOHN NJIRAINI if he is linked to corruption at KRA –DCI GEORGE KINOTI vows

Monday May 13, 2019-Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti ,has said his agency will arrest senior managers and commissioners in the ongoing fight against corruption at Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).

On Friday, detectives from DCI locked Times Towers and arrested 87 junior officers who are accused t to have engaged in corruption practices that have cost the country billions of shillings in tax revenue.

 Addressing journalists on Sunday, Kinoti said his agency is investigating money laundering and tax evasion.

“Some of those we have arrested have told us who their accomplices are and some of them are top managers at KRA. We will not spare anyone including commissioners if we find evidence,” Kinoti said.

KRA has consistently missed its targets in the last few years in what is believed to be a result of theft, cheating in the declaration of returns, corruption, collusion and soliciting bribes from tax cheats.

A multi-agency team has been investigating officials at KRA for the last four months. At some point, they hired and used interns and junior staff to spy on their bosses and relay all information to the investigating officers.
