Nakuru County spends KES 360 million paying workers

13 August 2014, 21:29 Wilshere

Nakuru - The county chief officer of Finance and Economic Planning, Kapaiya Torome has said that they have paid all county workers their July salaries.

Torome said that the county government has spent a total of KES 360 million in paying all the workers of the county.

“We have paid all our workers their salaries for June and July, the only money that we are yet pay is for this month only,” he said.

The chief officer of Finance noted that they had experienced some delay in payment since the county government had not received the money from the national treasury.

Speaking on Wednesday at his office during a press briefing, Torome said that the county government has also been depending on local revenue collection to operate.

He maintained that Nakuru County will not be experiencing any strikes from workers like other counties due to lack of payment

“After the budget was read we did not have money to pay most of our workers but we are also glad our local revenue collection kept us going,” he said.

 He also said that they are projecting county revenue collection will be high compared to the last financial year.

Torome added that the county government will be able to finish all the pending projects without any hitches since they are targeting to collect KES 2.5 billion from local revenue.

He also said that all the suppliers of the county will now be paid through Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS).

“All our suppliers were are opening for them an account of IFMIS because we shall be paying them through this new system,” he said.
