Kenya: Suppliers Want to Be Paid Dues

Several suppliers of goods and services to Embu county and national government departments have said they have not been paid for five months.

They said they are almost closing their business as they have no money to continue supplying the goods and services to the county and the national government departments.

The suppliers, who declined to be named for fear of victimisation, said they have borrowed loans from banks to get money to supply the services and they need to repay the debts. Some of the suppliers said they are unable to pay their workers' salaries.

However, several heads of departments from the county and the national government said that they were not able to pay the suppliers as the national government had not remitted the money to the counties. They said the suppliers will be paid soon.
