Revenue collection firm Jambo Pay  now says its ready to reconsider its contract with Nairobi City county government  should the political interference, Intimidation and negative publicity stops at City Hall.

Appearing before the  Information Technology Committee  county assembly Jambo Pay  chief Executive Officer  Danson  Muchemi says lack  of political goodwill has tremendously  brought them down in discharging their duties at city hall a move that  has also impacted negatively on  some of their potential  clients.

‘‘As Jambo Pay we are ready to continue but what we are also clear on, is that we want to migrate because it has been very difficult transacting  our mandates as per the contract the  major problem being political interference and mistrust.’’ He said.

According to Muchemi they have already considered giving out for free the software that the firm is using but  the county government will have to pay  for other associated services.

He further clarified that it would be difficult for any other firm to take over and pick  to their level saying it took four years to ensure that Nairobi collects maximum revenue in every stream.
