Bomet Governor Dr Hillary Barchok said the county is launching the new system to boost revenue collection at a time when it only collects at least 250 million shillings since Covid-19 hit the country against 600 million shillings during pre-Covid times.

In the financial year 2019/20 the Bomet county government target was 245 million shillings but only managed 211 million shillings.

To seal revenue loopholes, the county has invested in a digital system that will help boost revenue collection.

The system will help traders and business people institutes pay revenue through their mobile phones.

The private sector has been working with other counties especially in Nairobi where revenue has doubled from 7 billion shillings to 13 billion shillings.

Other counties with automated revenue collection systems include Nakuru, Kiambu Uasin Gishu, Kericho among other counties
