Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich has announced the appointment of James Githii Mburu as the next Kenya Revenue Authority Commissioner General.

A gazette notice released on Thursday indicated that Mburu will serve for a period of three years effective July 1, 2019.

The notice is dated June 4, 2019

Mburu will be replacing John Njiraini who has been at the helm of the revenue body since March 2012 when he replaced Michael Waweru.

He is currently the KRA Intelligence and Strategic Operations Commissioner.

The KRA top post was advertised on April 24 as the current office holder John Njiraini is expected to exit this month.

Mburu was among five candidates who were shortlisted for the position that attracted 30 Kenyans.

They include; Julius Waita Mwatu, Richard Buru Ndung’u, Andrew Kazora Okello and Duncan Otieno Onduru.

Last year, the KRA Board had extended Njiraini’s tenure by one year following a Presidential directive.
