In November 2018, The Kenya Revenue Authority advertised for intern vacancies at it’s headquarters at Times Towers, Nairobi Kenya.
A report seen by udaku.co.ke indicates that over 2000 interns were recruited to join the prestigious government entity. Little known to the employees at KRA, the office of the Director Of Criminal Investigations had slid in some of it’s detectives as interns at their headquarters.
The detectives worked in secrecy recording all phone calls, emails and text messages from the employees. Nobody suspected of being spied and went about their daily business of forging documents, aiding in tax evasion and receiving bribes.

DCI arrested 75 KRA employees for various crimes. In statement the DCI boss said;
“Investigations into the rackets have been in progress for the last four months with covert assistance provided by national law enforcement agencies to help trail money and communication,” said KRA’s outgoing Commissioner General John Njiraini.
