Nyeri County to automate revenue collection

25 November 2013, 10:05 Joseph Mukubwa

Nyeri - Nyeri County government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Equity Bank in a bid to implement the automated revenue collection system.

The deal was signed during the investors' forum last week by the Nyeri governor, Nderitu Gachagua, and the Equity Bank director, Gerald Warui.

In a move likely to end corruption and seal all loopholes in the revenue collection system, the MoU will see the council net over KES 1. 5 billion from the current KES 500 million from the car parking fees per year.

The current system collects only KES 500 million per year in one of the services which is riddled with corruption.

“The new modern method will be cashless and one will only need to swap the card and the money is send to the Nyeri County revenue account directly,” said the governor.

Gachagua said the machine will also expand the revenue base for the County government.

Warui added that the system will enhance efficiency in revenue collection.

Meanwhile, the governor said the County government will use the cess collected to improve the 3, 500 kilometers of rough road which needs to be graveled.

The governor said they are yet to find an investor who is ready to improve most of the bad roads in the County saying the cess will help improve it.
