Kenya: Kwale Revenue Shoots Up

The Kwale county government collected Sh60.3 million in its first six months, Finance executive Bakari Sebe has said. In the last financial year, the county collected Sh37.7 million. Sebe was speaking on Tuesday when he tabled the report before Kwale assembly. He said the county has improved its revenue collection.

Sebe said for the month of January 2014, the county collected Sh15.0 million against Sh10.5 million collected in January in 2013. "There has been a lot of reshuffling to break the monotony and cartels in the whole system," he told the house.

The improvements which are a good start for the county government, Sebe attributed them to Systems and controls of revenue collections put in place from the books of collection, spot checks, to surrender of books.
