Five candidates have been shortlisted to the final stage of the race to succeed Kenya Revenue Authority outgoing commissioner general John Njiraini.
The initial list had 30 applicants but the shortlisted five are Duncan Otieno Onduru, James Githii Mburu, Julius Waita Mwatu, Richard Boro Ndungu and Anrew Kazora Okello.
From the look of things a Kikuyu or a Luo is likely to land the slot and neither a Kalenjin nor a Luhya has been shortlisted.
In the gender biased list Kikuyu has two names in the final list, same as the Luos while there is one Kamba candidate.
Insiders say Mburu is likely to succeed Njiraini, as he has been groomed
