The story from a local daily magazine states that Njiraini is engaged in a bitter feud for control of Space and Styles Limited, a tiles manufacturing company.
The other partner in the company, a Mr. Wambugu accuses the KRA Boss of using his position to intimidate him.
According to court documents, Njiraini owns 5000 ordinary shares using an off-shore company Decamis Limited.
Njiraini’s tenure in office ended in September 2017 but was later extended for a year beginning February 2018.
Recent media reports showed that Njiraini had been ‘locked out of his office’.
However, in a statement, the board at KRA led by Ambassador Francis Muthaura said that he ‘was still in charge’, till June 2019.
Some analysts say the move was aimed at giving the KRA chief ample time to ‘put his house (businesses) in order’.
