What you need to know:

  • The adoption of technology, including the usage of the e-Tims, is one of the ways President William Ruto’s administration wants to seal leakages.
  • The taxman has changed this by enabling every Kenyan to access e-Tims through the e-Citizen platform and the USSD code *222# if they don’t have a smartphone.

  • KRA’s move to force e-Tims on small-scale farmers in Central Kenya has touched a raw nerve, with crop growers now expected to be on-boarded by the end of this month.
