The Kenya Revenue Authority plans to adopt a new tax collection system within the next 18 months that will address some of the challenges that the Simba system has been facing.
Commissioner General John Njiraini also says the taxman will from June this year fully implement the electronic cargo trucking system.
Kenya Tuesday joined the world in marking the International Customs Day which recognizes the role of custom officials and agencies in maintaining border security as well as the challenges that customs officers face in their jobs.
Njiraini says KRA also plans to adopt an electronic cargo tracking system in June this year alongside countries that use the northern corridor to ferry cargo.
Going forward, KRA plans to prioritize social media to communicate and engage with the public. The theme for this year International Customs Day is Digital Customs Progressive Engagement.
