The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

In the damn­ing rev­e­la­tions, Mom­basa Gov­er­nor Has­san Joho is on the spot for op­er­at­ing four par­al­lel rev­enue col­lec­tion ac­counts.

Two ac­counts at KCB, one at Na­tional Bank of Kenya and another at Co­op­er­a­tive Bank.

The county is also ac­cused of run­ning 22 “il­le­gal” bank ac­counts, in­clud­ing those for the de­funct lo­cal au­thor­i­ties, with bal­ances of Sh193.7 mil­lion. “In the cir­cum­stances, the va­lid­ity, ac­cu­racy and com­plete­ness of the bal­ances amount­ing to Sh299 mil­lion as at June 30 last year could not be as­cer­tained,” the re­port says.

The county is ac­cused of fail­ing to bank Sh165 mil­lion col­lected be­tween Jan­uary and June 2015 into the county rev­enue fund. The law re­quires each county trea­sury to en­sure all monies are de­posited into the rev­enue ac­count.
