In Summary
  • Just before the August 8, 2017 elections, Ms Galgalo was an employee of the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).
  • In 2018, she was appointed as an executive in the Isiolo County government, a position she holds to date.

Former Isiolo Woman Representative Tiya Galgalo’s approval as a member of the National Land Commission (NLC) hangs in the balance after the taxman confirmed she had not filed her tax compliance returns for 2017 and 2018.

One is required to have cleared with the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) before they are appointed to any government position in line with the Leadership and Integrity Act.

KRA Commissioner General James Mburu appeared before the National Assembly Committee on Lands that vetted Ms Galgalo for the position on Friday and promised that by Wednesday next week he will have established how a tax compliance certificate was irregularly issued to Ms Galgalo despite not filing her income returns.

NIL RETURNS

The KRA finding will be critical to the committee chaired by Kitui South MP Rachael Nyamai.
