Felix Koskei, Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service under President William Ruto, revealed that the eCitizen platform brings in Ksh 281 million a day for the government.
250 government agencies are offering services to Kenyans through the e-citizen platform, according to a statement released by Koskei Tuesday.
In a statement, Koskei stated that as of now, 250 Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) had fully adopted e-Citizen, providing over 16,000 government services—an increase from 397 in June 2022—and earning Sh281 million per day.
He noted that once all government agencies are using the platform, the government will surpass the Ksh 1 billion milestone.
Additionally, Koskei requested that government organizations that have not yet changed their paybill numbers to 222222 under Ruto’s instruction do so.
He continued, “I also call on government institutions to close in accordance with the Presidential Directive if they are still operating paybill and till numbers other than 222222.”
Following the government’s summons of the CEOs of 17 state-run agencies to account for their noncompliance with a presidential mandate about service payments through eCitizen, Koskei made his remark.
The Kenya Revenue Authority, the Kenya Power and Lighting Company, the Kenya National Examination Council, the National Hospital Insurance Fund, the Higher Education Loans Board, the Hustler Fund, and the Agricultural Finance Corporation are some of the organizations that have been called upon.
Additional organizations include the Mathari Referral and Teaching Hospital, Kenya Railways Corporation, Kenya Ferry Services Limited, Kenya National Trading Corporation, Kenya School of Government, Kenyatta National Hospital, Kenya Bureau of Standards, Kenya Ports Authority, National Cereals and Produce Board, National Aids Control Council.
