Retired KRA Commissioner General John Njiraini to be interviewed for NLC chairperson job

Retired Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) Commissioner-General John Njiraini was on Tuesday listed among the 11 candidate who will be interviewed for the National Lands Commission (NLC) chairperson job.

The immediate former KRA boss, who has attained the 60 years retirement age for all public servants, only left KRA on June 30 this year.

Barely a month after his service at KRA ended, Njiraini will be interviewed as a prospective replacement for Prof. Muhammad Swazuri on Monday July 29.


The others shortlisted for the position include: lawyers Gerishom Otachi and Paul Musili, Mwenda Makathimo, Robert Kilimo, Humphrey Njuguna, Naomi Wagereka, Tiyah Galgalo, former Nyeri MP Esther Murugi and Hussein Farah.

Njiraini to appear before panel

On July 30, candidates for the commissioners positions will begin their interviews before a selected panel appointed for the specific task.

The interviewing panel consists of Kennedy Kihara (Office of the President), Architect Steven Oundo, Esther Njiru Omulele, National Gender and Equality Commission (NGEC) member Priscilla Nyokabi and Planner Mairura Omwenga (UoN lecturer).

Prof. Swazuri is facing corruption charges in court where he has denied accusations of conspiring to defraud the government of Sh221.3 million.


The professor and his team served a six-year term at the commission and formally exited on February 19 this year.
