We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Kajiado governor David Nkedianye today said he is disturbed by rate at in which county revenue collectors are “stealing” money.

Nkedianye claimed that most of the money collected as revenue in all the urban centres end up in the pockets of the staff.

In the first year after the 2013 general election, revenue collectors raised aboutSh600 million and in the following year, they collected a whooping Sh900 million.

At the end of the third year after the devolution, revenue collectors managed a paltry Sh400 million, less than half they had collected the previous year.

The governor claimed that as devolution grows older, the staff in the revenue department is acquiring sophisticated skills of stealing from the government.

This is the reason Nkedianye has collaborated with Kenya Commercial Bank and River Bank Solutions in acquiring revenue automation gadgets for tax collectors in all its urban centres.

Speaking during the launch of the new equipment in his office, Nkedianye said the gadgets will now help in transmitting the figures direct to the department of finance at the county headquarters in Kajiado Town.

He appealed to the residents of the county and all those doing businesses in the region to ensure they are receipted for all they pay to the government as revenue.

“Those operating private and public transport vehicles should pay their parking fees to the right people and ensure that they are issued with official receipts from the automated revenue machines,” said Nkedianye.

Saul Ongalo, who presided over the handing over of the automation gadgets to the regional government, said Kajiado is the 17th county in the country to receive such machines.

Ongalo is the director at the River Bank Solutions and has been collaborating with KCB in supplying counties with the machines.

He said the machines are tamper-proof, and therefore cannot be manipulated.
