According to Ouko, Njiraini was supposed to go on terminal leave from September 4, 2017.
A government circular dated November 23, 2010 states that he should have left office last year pending his retirement.
“This requirement has not been acted upon to date, and the board did not recommend that the commissioner-general proceed on terminal leave,” the report tabled by Majority Leader Aden Duale in parliament read.
In 2015, the board renewed Njiraini’s contract for a 3-year term, which was supposed to end on March 4, 2018, but he did not take terminal leave as required.
Ouko also raised concerns over KRA’s Ksh 3.4 billion expenditure citing documentation to show that the money was used prudently.
“The work in progress of Sh3.7 billion cannot be confirmed,” the auditor general’s report noted.
The cash that cannot be accounted for does not include Ksh 1.6 billion for one-stop border post (OSBP) works in various parts of the country.
The tax body also failed to account for payment vouchers to support the expenditure of Ksh 777.2 million used on various projects.
