A delegation from Busia County led by the CECM for Finance, Economic Planning and ICT Ms. Topista Wanyama on Tuesday visited Kakamega County to learn on ways of enhancing own source revenue collection in their County.
Kakamega CECM for ICT, e-Government and Communication Ms. Rachel Atamba who received the visitors on behalf of H.E FCPA Governor Fernandes Barasa thanked them for choosing to learn from Kakamega and advised the Officers at the Kakamega County Revenue Agency (KCRA) to also learn from Busia on best practices. She encouraged the officers of both Governments to exchange ideas on areas of mutual interest.
The Chief Revenue Administrator CPA Aggrey Musindalo took the visitors through operations of the Agency with regards to revenue collection. They also got a chance to interact with Kakamega Municipality, being the largest station in revenue collection in Kakamega.
The visitors later proceeded to Khwisero Sub-County which has consistently led in monthly revenue perfomance this financial year despite being relatively small in size.
Busia revenue department has a permanent and pensionable workforce of around 250 persons with a target of around Kshs 350 Million this financial year compared to KCRA’s contracted staff of around 300 persons with a target of KShs 2B this year.
