HERE ARE THE DETAILS ON THE 2019 CENSUS PAYMENT STATUS
To date, only 148, 335 out of the 161, 763 personnel have been paid by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics.
According to the KNBS, those who have not received their payment had technical errors such as wrong or dormant accounts thus delaying the completion of their payment status.
Another major reason for the delayed payment is failure by some officers to return the gadgets used during the enumeration process.
The KNBS contracted 135, 000 enumerators, 27, 000 content supervisors and 2, 700 IT personnel to conduct the already completed national census.
Other people who were incorporated include village elders, coordinators and security personnel who oversaw the smooth running of the exercise.
