The Kenya Revenue Authority Board notes some concerns regarding the ongoing investigations into fraudulent practices by staff in the discharge of their duties.
The Board wishes to confirm that the ongoing investigations are an initiative of the Kenya Revenue Authority and relevant National Government investigative agencies. This should therefore neither be characterized as a personal agenda driven by specific individuals within the Authority nor as a scheme targeting groups or categories of staff.
The Board treats incidences of tax evasion as serious crimes that demand resolute action against both taxpayers and staff members who may abet such practices and therefore, wishes to reaffirm its resolve to continue the fight against corruption within the Authority.
Finally, the Board wishes to express its confidence in the Commissioner General and the Management team and assures the public that the operations of the Kenya Revenue Authority continue uninterrupted.
