Kiambu Deputy Governor James Nyoro has vowed to seal loop holes, and streamline revenue collection in the county.
In his address at Ndumberi Stadium during Mashujaa Day celebrations, Nyoro said loop holes in the revenue collection process was costing the county huge loses.
He said some officials in the county were taking advantage of the gaps to defraud the devolved unit.
He, however, noted that he is working with relevant agencies to streamline the process, adding that action will be taken against those found guilty of defrauding the county.
“We will be very strict and take serious measures on those stealing county revenue at all our collection points. Be warned, your days are numbered. We will catch up with you and you will face the law,” he said as quoted by Nation.
He said Kiambu is lagging behind owing to some dishonest workers, but affirmed that the county will soon catch up with all of them.
“I acknowledge that the county government has been losing money through loopholes created deliberately by some dishonest workers. We are going to progressively restore order,” he added.
Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu is facing corruption charges, and has been barred from accessing his offices in the county.
