Message from Dr. Fred Mugambi Mwirigi (PhD),

Ag. Head, Kenya School of Revenue Administration

KESRA is positioning herself as the most preferred training institution in Africa in the areas of Tax, Customs and Fiscal policy, with a primary focus on capacity building for the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). To achieve this ambitious goal the School has committed to a robust transformation process which is supported by equally robust and ambitious Strategic and Business Plans.

Further to this, KESRA is leveraging on national and international experiences to deliver cutting edge training with 50% of our effort going into capacity building for KRA staff while the other 50% focuses on external capacity building and consultancy at the national and regional levels. To attain this, the School has put together a robust and broad-based six-pronged strategy whose pillars are as follows:

  1. Continuous review and enrichment of curriculum and training delivery methodologies in line with the ever-changing industry needs and dynamics.
  2. Staff development and morale enhancement to align staff skills, knowledge and attitude sets to emerging training needs.
  3. Infrastructure, facility expansion and modernization in both Nairobi and Mombasa campuses.
  4. Leveraging on modern technologies for effective and efficient management and delivery of processes and products respectively including rolling out a fully-fledged e-campus.
  5. Developing and leveraging on strategic partnerships with distinguished organizations and institutions in Africa and across the world. Currently, KESRA has running partnerships with WCO, ROCB, EAC, FEAFFA, KIFWA, OECD, ATAF, GIZ, NITA, INCU, JKUAT, Moi University and London School of Economics and Political Science among others.
  6. Enhancement of research including setting up a fully-fledged research unit, organizing a major annual research conference and developing an international research journal.

In terms of training products, KESRA shall continue to offer targeted skill-based Certificate and Diploma programs internally and Postgraduate Diploma and Master’s Degree programs in partnership with respected universities. This is besides the targeted short courses and consultancy engagements that the School runs for KRA staff and other audiences of interest.

The future is indeed exciting for KESRA. As we walk towards this future, we invite you to partner with us so that we can take this journey together.
