County governments' revenue collection down 25pc

Kenya: County governments are performing more poorly in revenue collection than the former local authorities, Commission on Revenue Allocation boss Micah Cheserem has said.

Speaking at the launch of ‘Model County Revenue Legislation handbook’ for county governments in Kenya, in Kitengela, the CRA chairman said it is surprising that most county governments cannot collect revenue as earlier projected.CRA boss said there was 25 per cent reduction in revenue collection across the board.

“We have seen county governments perform dismally in revenue collection compared to the former county councils,” said Micah Cheserem. He noted that counties in marginalised areas such as Mandera and Pokot are doing better than other counties.
