EACC circular reveals loopholes in county revenue administration leading to corruption

A circular by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has revealed that the lack of laws on county revenue administration and streams is giving rogue officials multiple ways to steal from devolved units.

Titled ‘Advisory on Revenue Management in County Governments’ and signed by EACC chief executive Twalib Mbarak, the circular cites “generic loopholes in revenue management” in counties, stating that there are numerous weak links in the fight against graft.

The document shows that revenue collection in some counties is done by unauthorised staff and casual workers, which has a large impact on the effectiveness of revenue collection.

The EACC conducted a corruption risk assessment in several counties, revealing that the Public Financial Management (PFM) Act 2012 is greatly abused, with several of its provisions largely contravened.

The advisory warns counties against using revenue collectors that are not easily identifiable and advises that the revenue collectors should “put on official uniform or name tags”.

The EACC recommends that counties develop and operationalise systems and procedures to streamline integrity and transparency in revenue management in line with relevant provisions of the Constitution and Public Finance Management Act 2012.
