EACC partners with KRA to fight corruption

01 November 2013, 18:46 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has partnered with the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to combat corruption and prevent economic crime.

The organizations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) setting out the framework that would promote mutual ethics and integrity to assist in controlling corruption and unethical conduct in revenue collection and tax administration at the Authority.

John Njiraini, the KRA Commissioner General said,"This MoU touches on areas such as lifestyle audits and asset recovery, investigations and intelligence gathering, integrity testing programme, prosecution of cases of tax evasion, vetting, and corruption prevention and capacity building."

Njiraini said lifestyle audits involve detecting and deterring corruption practices to recover the unexplained assets. He said the exercise will be fostered by the duals carrying out joint integrity Testing Programme on allegations of corruption, and fraudulent, unethical practices including the KRA employees.

"We seek to establish mechanisms for synergy in vetting applicants joining KRA, also the continuing ones, and conducting investigations and prosecution of tax evasion offenses by both external and internal staff members colluding with dishonest taxpayers," said Njiraini.

He lauded the Authority for its remarkable tax collection services that made it emerge position eight in 2012 national integrity survey, ranking as the least corrupt sector.

Mumo Matemo, the EACC Chairman, said, "I have no doubt that the signing of this MoU today will strengthen dual cooperation in combating corruption that has detrimental challenges to the nation's economy and citizens' well-being."

Matemo said the Commission will adopt advanced devices to carry out undercover investigations to detect tax evaders and other fraudulent culprits for prosecution.

He added that the Commission will extend its investigative responsibility further to the county governments after receiving tax evasion complaints and fraudulent acquisition of public property.

"I assure Kenyans that the EACC's partnership with KRA will ensure that the nation does not go back to those days when there was high rate of tax evasion and corruption," said Matemo.

The MoU will be implemented by an Oversight Committee comprising top management from both parties.
