A recent annual county report released on Tuesday has revealed that Nairobi’s City Hall has fallen short of its intended revenue target for 2016-2017.

According to the report, the county only managed to collect Sh23.7 billion in revenue compared to its projected revenue collection of Sh34.7 billion.

As a result the Sh11 billion difference has delayed several projects planned to take place all across Nairobi.
