Treasury CS Ukur Yatani has extended the term of KRA Commissioner James Mburu from three years to five years.
The decision to extend his term to five was arrived at after officials from KRA held a consultative meeting where they agreed the three-term limit was not enough to meet their obligations.
Upon conclusion of their meeting they forwarded their resolution to CS Ukur Yatani who then approved it.

- James Mburu takes over from John Njiraini as KRA commissioner
Mr. James Mburu came in as the KRA Commissioner in July 2019 succeeding then boss John Njiraini who was heading for retirement.
He previously worked as the head of Intelligence and Strategic operations at KRA, a position which gained recognition from the government.
His main focus was to implement the use of technology so as to bring many people and business to the tax bracket.
True to his word he has managed to implement it and even attracted backlash from his staff members for being strict on performance.
Much more is expected of him as the board terms the current leadership and full of energy to attain the desired goals.
