AUTOMATION OF MURANGA PUBLIC SERVICES
Muranga County Government through the ICT Department has fully implemented the automation of the county’s revenue collection services in the following sub-sectors:
- Parking fee online payment
- Hospital bills payment services
- Business permit services
- Quarry payment services
The automation of the county’s revenue collection has sealed loopholes that denied the administration the chance to reach its set targets. This has led to a revenue increase in the Muranga Level 5 revenue from a collection of Kshs. 70,000 to more than Kshs. 150,000 in a month while the parking fee has increased from the 13% to 20%.
The governor H.E. Irungu Kangata in the aim of automating the county’s revenue collection services has held talks with the Safaricom C.E.O Mr. Peter Ndegwa with the aim of expanding the automation and digitization of county services. This has seen a partnership entered between the county and Safaricom in automating payment of business permits, liquor licenses, Market fees, Quarry, and hospital services.
