NAIROBI, KENYA: The Nairobi County government projects an increase in its monthly parking collection to more than Sh200 million.
This was after the collection for January hit Sh149 million, up from Sh128 million in December. The amount was collected from motorists parking on the streets, off streets, seasonal tickets, clamping fees, impounded cars and loading zones.
Officials in the parking section said they have put measures in place to address a number of weaknesses that saw revenue go down.
The measures include planting inspectors at various places. “We have realised there have been so many masqueraders who were collecting money that never reached our coffers.
“There will be inspectors in those areas to ensure only genuine officials are on duty,” said Tom Tinega, an officer in charge of parking.
Last week, two people identified as Stephen Kamau Kariuki and Kelvin Karanja were charged with posing as car park attendants. A court heard that on diverse date between November 1, 2013, and January 30, 2014, at Kenda House, the two conspired to defraud the county government of Sh140,000 by printing 1,000 daily car park receipts purported to be genuine.
