Kajiado governer defends new rates

29 November 2013, 17:16 Eugene Odanga

Kajiado - Kajiado County Governor David Nkedianye has defended his decision to press on with new rates and charges saying they are important to the growth of the region.

The County government recently pushed in new rates and charges that will see services like parking and other essentials charged.

Parking, which did not attarct any charge previously will cost KES 30.

According to Nkedianye, the decision to charge parking and other services is to help the government improve on service delivery.

" We have pushed in the charges because we need to improve service delivery which will only happen if we have some money to spend, he said.

" Everywhere in the world there has to be a system of revenue collection and it is no different for us.

" We have a central government allocated budget that is not enough and so we have to supplement it through revenue collection, he added.

On the issue of the suspension of land transactions in the county, he said that the move was needed to curb illegalities in the land trade.

" We have suspended land transactions for a good reason. We want to be able to do things in the right manner and that is the only reason we have done it.

" As soon as we are done with the national land commission we will lift the ban, he said.

 The government suspended all land transactions in September for six months as it streamlines the handling of transfers.
