The revenue collected by the government on the eCitizen portal on a single day has for the first time crossed the Sh900 million mark.

Immigration and Citizen Services Principal Secretary Julius Bitok said the latest data from the online access and payment platform for government services reveals that Sh903.6 million was collected on Wednesday, December 20, 2023.

Of the amount, nearly a third was generated from transactions in US dollars totaling $1,446,495 compared to the Sh680.4 million in the local currency.

The figure marks a steady rise in monies collected through the platform following President William Ruto’s directive to all state agencies to onboard their services on the eCitizen platform by the end of this year.

“This is a rise in all ways and we expect more in the coming days,” said Bitok.
