President William Ruto want KRA to be renamed.

The proposal to rename the Kenya Revenue Authority was made on Thursday by President William Ruto.

The rebranding will be a part of a culture change to make the authority more welcoming, the President proposed in his proposal.

He desires that it be referred to as the Kenya Revenue Service.

"We want to make it a people-friendly, customer-centric organization. I am of the view that we rename it The Kenya Revenue Service. In line with the proposed transformation," Ruto said.

The President stated that his team will also put up fresh tax policies that will help steer the nation in the correct direction.

Ukur Yatani, the departing Treasury CS, was the one who first proposed changing the name of KRA.

The proposal was made at the budget presentation for the final year of President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration, 2022–2023.

"In order to align the operations of the Authority to this emerging trend, I propose to amend the Kenya Revenue Authority Act to change the name of the Authority from ‘Kenya Revenue Authority’ to ‘Kenya Revenue Service'," Yatani said.
