COSASE grills KCCA officials over remitting money for workers
KCCA officials have been grilled over the failure to remit one billion and 47 million shillings of NSSF for its workers. The officials led by the deputy director KCCA, Sam Serukuuma today appeared appearing before the committee on commissions state and statutory enterprises which was chaired by the deputy chairperson, Anita Among to answer the auditor general queries of 2014/2015.
The human resource manager , Richard Lule informed the committee that the arrears had arose after they misinterpreted the law on whether political heads, revenue officers, enforcement officers and casual workers were eligible to remit money to NSSF but says they have now remitted all the arrears
Lule was quick to clarify that the money was provided in the budget and even taken care of the 5 percent that was meant to be paid by employees. The committee also later realised that KCCA has not been remitting money to NSSF amounting to 7 billion even though they have deducting the 5 percent from the employees.
