City Hall cash under new management beginning today

Changes at City Hall

City Hall hands over revenue collection services to KRA in transfer of functions to National Government

Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) on Monday was set to take over the revenue collection functions of the Nairobi County administration.

The operations centered at City Hall included the collection of parking fees, business license fees, land lease fees and buildings’ approval charges for the city of Nairobi.

The transfer is part of the deal struck between Governor Mike Sonko and the National Government on February 26, 2020.

The transfer comes amid confusion that has rocked the garbage collection unit at City Hall.

48-hour ultimatum

Last week, NEMA issued a 48-hour ultimatum to Nairobi County over garbage collection around the city.

The service was abruptly halted when contracted garbage collectors downed their tools over payment delays.

The situation was worsened by back-and-forth exchanges between the Finance Department and the Environment department.

The operations are expected to be streamlined as the transfer deed takes effect.
