Homa Bay Governor Gladys Wanga has granted a 15-day tax holiday as her administration attempts to identify loopholes leading to reduced revenue collection.

During this period, revenue collectors will report to the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning for further direction.

The waiver begins Wednesday as a 13-member multi-agency task force tries to find ways to raise money. According to the governor, the county was planning to get Sh300,000 this year while it could collect Sh1 billion. Ms Wanga criticized the dismal performance of own-source revenue.

“After my inauguration, I asked the relevant offices for an update on the financial health of the county…We have seen a fluctuation that indicates a breach in the revenue collection system. There is no point in people pay money that is of no use to reach the county.
