In Summary
  • Governor Mike Sonko said that all revenue streams would be automated in efforts meant to reduce corruption.
  • Only 14,172 motorists out of 30,497 paid for parking between July 10 and 23.

Nairobi County has increased it’s revenue by more than 100 per cent in two days following automation of revenue collection.

Governor Mike Sonko on Tuesday announced that collection has reached 38.2 million since the automation at the cash office.

The office used to bank Sh7 million daily before automation.

JAMBOPAY

The county has stopped use of cash in any transaction and residents have been directed to pay for services electronically after City Hall moved to seal revenue leakages.

At the cash office, JamboPay, a company that provides e-payment platform, has taken over and all revenue is being paid through the automated systems.

“After spending several hours at the cash office instructing taxpayers to be paying directly to the bank in case there was a system failure, we have managed to collect a record Sh38.2 million.

"This is only from the 14 revenue streams that have been digitised, out of over 136 revenue streams,” Mr Sonko said.

E-PAYMENT
The governor said in a statement that from an average Sh7 million that used to be declared a week ago, the sting operation he had led had resulted in a sustained increase in daily collections.

From the day he and his deputy Polycarp Igathe raided the cash office and found Sh7 million unbanked, revenue has gone up to Sh14 million.
