Kakamega commits Sh100 million monthly to clear pending bills

Kakamega Deputy Governor Ayub Savula has assured contractors and suppliers that the county government is committed to clearing all pending Bills.

He says the current administration inherited pending bills of over Sh1.4 billion from the previous regime. Meanwhile, Savula says they have managed to pay Sh900 million, with the process continuing until they clear all bills owed by the county government.

He noted that the county government has resolved to pay at least Sh100 million every month to clear the debts. The Deputy Governor also disclosed that the county reports to the Senate the progress made in clearing the bills, the amount cleared, and the remaining amount.

“We ask traders in Kakamega to continue carrying on with their businesses,” he pointed out. He asked suppliers and contractors to be free to visit the county government, engage with the governor and deputy governor concerning their pending bills, and seek clarification on the same.

Speaking in Ikolomani, Savula urged the teachers he was meeting to also engage in other income generating activities like businesses to supplement their monthly income. The county government is ready to support teachers in their business ventures, aiming to improve their lives through their support.
