The County Government has migrated to e-revenue collection mechanism in a bid to boost efficiency.

The  Kakamega Governor,  Wycliffe  Oparanya  said the manual system inherited from the defunct local authorities had loopholes that were  exploited  by  unscrupulous revenue officers.

He  spoke  on Wednesday during the launch at Bukhungu stadium where he said the county had the potential of raising Sh. 1 billion annually  but  they were realizing less than half of it due to leakages.

Oparanya  disclosed  that  after the adoption of the cashless system three years ago the collection has been improving in revenue collection  and  last  financial year they realized Sh. 800 million.

The  County head observed that they also expect to maintain an upward trend for this year.
