James Mburu

James Githii Mburu is the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) Commissioner-General, a position he was appointed to in 2019.

He took over the post after the retirement of current KRA Commissioner General, John Njiraini.

In August 2020, Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani through a gazette notice amended the term of office for the Commissioner-General to five years from an initial three years.

The amendment will see Githii serve an additional two years to mid-2024.

James Mburu was previously the Commissioner of Intelligence and Strategic Operations, where he developed a formidable intelligence gathering infrastructure.

During his tenure which started with his appointment in March 2017, the KRA boss has overseen complex and highly sensitive tax investigations touching on powerfully connected companies and individuals.
