Revenue Collection to be digitized at Local Government Level

25 September, 2023

Revenue collection at local government level is to be digitized.

This was announced by Maris Wangera the acting director for debt and cash policy at the finance ministry at the Eastern region local government consultative budget conference for the 2024/2025 financial year. The conference was held at Mount Elgon Hotel.

Wangera says government loses huge sums of money as a result of corrupt public officials who opt not to declare money collected.

She explains that since revenue collection at national level is now collected digitally, local governments should follow suit.

Jean Bageya head of planning at the local government finance commission welcomed the plan to digitize local revenue collections saying it will boost the country’s tax base.
