Amendment of Finance Bill will not have negative outcome

06 February 2014, 10:14 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru County chief officer of Finance and Economic Planning, Kapaiya Torome has said the impending amendment of finance bill will not hinder revenue collection in the County.

Kapaiya noted that the bill will help the County meet its set target of KES 2.5 billion in the coming financial year.

“The amendments which are going to be made on the bill will not have a negative effect on our revenue collection,” he said.

The chief officer of finance said that some of the key areas that they will be amended are family planning and boda boda parking fees.

Speaking to the media on Tuesday, Kapaiya assured the residents that there will be no victimization by council officers during the collection of revenue.

“We have some areas that will need some amendments but this will only be done in consultation with key stakeholders,” he noted.

At the same time, Kapaiya said that his office will not tolerate any officer who will be caught engaging in any form of corruption.

He also said that the County government was putting in place stringent measures to curb cases of corruption in all the eleven sub-counties.

While commenting on matters of transfers, he said that transfer of County officials will not be politically instigated but will be done depending on one's performance.
