Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) commissioner-general John Njiraini will continue serving as the chief taxman, pending the determination of a case seeking his removal.

Justice Nelson Abuodha Tuesday ruled that the case should be concluded before March 3, the date when Mr Njiraini is expected to have left office.

While ruling on the suit filed by activist Okiya Omtatah, Justice Aboudha said Mr Njiraini is a man of means and can be ordered to refund whatever money he would have received as KRA boss, if the court finds that he is in office illegally.

The judge declined to order Mr Njiraini to step aside pending determination of the case.
