On Thursday President Uhuru Kenyatta asked the CRA, the KRA, Council of Governors and the National Treasury to form a Multi-Agency Team whose principal aim shall be to deliver on a single revenue collection system, that is integrated with National Government Systems and to be used across all 47 Counties.

“I received the status report on the Joint National and Resource Mapping project that I set up in May 2018. We reckon that the first step in Kenya’s journey to a better and brighter tomorrow begins by us knowing where we are as a nation, and what resources we have,” He said

Uhuru said the survey and mapping projects are necessary because Kenya has relied on inaccurate and outdated maps for too long, for our physical planning, boundaries and demarcation processes, mapping of natural resources and other planning requirements.

He added that Relevant agencies are directed to take advantage and fully embrace 21st century technologies to ensure that our urban areas are well planned, orderly, and exhibit the standards of living that all Kenyans desire and deserve.

“Our projections had indicated the production of a single map sheet would cost Sh.148 million, but the multi-agency team has produced them for Sh.70,000 each,” He Said.

According to Uhuru, The entire project was estimated to cost Sh. 7 billion, but through pooling of resources we’ve cut the cost to Sh.2 billion.
