Nairobi Governor Sakaja Johnson has cautioned Nairobi Revenue payers to be vigilant and watch out for unscrupulous staff and imposters pretending to aid and by pass Revenue collection channels.
Governor Sakaja was speaking after the EACC opened a probe on revenue diversion in City Hall after arresting a revenue clerk and an intern accused of bribery and producing fake receipts.
Said Governor Sakaja, “I would like to inform Nairobians that we do not accept any CASH payment for our services. In fact, if any of my Revenue team members ask for payment in cash or purports to be able to assist outside of the system that we have put in place for Revenue collection please report them to 020 7247047 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take immediate action. Please note that we will commence enforcement in earnest in February. No member of staff is allowed to enforce in the month of January as we are using this month to allow for transition to the Unified Business Permit (UBP) regime.”
