"We have launched this system to ensure that as a government we hit our Sh1 billion target in revenue collection. Our aim is to ensure that we collect revenue across the county where our client can pay online at the convenience of their homes," said the County Secretary.

Bett who spoke to the press during the launch urged the business community to pay their revenue to help government run its business.

"Paying your revenues on time helps you to carry out your businesses operations environment without engaging the County enforcing officers," added Bett.
