Kakamega County Executive Committee Member (CECM) for Finance and Planning Dr. Beatrice Sabana has challenged revenue clerks to explore more revenue streams to boost the collection.
Dr. Sabana directed the clerks to stick to the e-Revenue Collection System adding that any malfunctions should promptly be reported to the relevant offices.
She was speaking on Monday afternoon during day one of a three-day training programme for the clerks at Bishop Nicholas Stam Pastoral Centre on the outskirts of Kakamega town.
The CECM cautioned the officers against corruption saying anyone found engaging in the vice would be punished accordingly.
Chief Officer (CO) James Ochami, who took the clerks through the Kakamega County Revenue Agency (KCRA) Strategic Plan, said enhanced revenue collection is a key for socio-economic development.
He said the county has the potential of raising Sh2 billion in local revenue annually.
The officers were also sensitized on county laws, taxes, rates and communication skills.
