The Makueni county government is in talks with Safaricom to digitise revenue collection. Safaricom head of government relations Ronald Osumba said the county leadership identified revenue collection automation as a key partnership area.
He was speaking at Wote town yesterday at a consultative meeting. He said Safaricom will establish a comprehensive taxpayers' database to enable them pay taxes through the M-Pesa service.
Osumba said the move will reduce tax evasion. Makueni Finance executive Alidan Mbinda said boda boda operators are notorious for evading taxes.
