No Christmas for the county and governors support stuff as the Integrated Financial Management Information System(IFMIS) failed to function in processing county funds. The statement that was given by the finance ministry indicates that no even a single penny was sent to the counties.

The total brokendown of  IFMIS today afternoon rendered thousands of county workers go to the holidays broke. According to the ICT department at the treasury, the hitch  happened following heavy traffic through their network while they are upgrading servers at the backend.

The county workers have been told to be calm as the  ICT administrators are trying to fix it. The period of fixing the problem is speculated to take a minimum of five days. 

According to Jerome Ochieng, the Director of IFMIS, said the IFMIS wentdown totally today in the afternoon after two days of slow perfomance. The technical bench will resume tomorow to find the solution inorder to take it restore the system as early as possible as they will continue to upgrade the servers.

The Finance Cabinet secretary Henry Rotich said, " We are upgrading the system and at the same time adding more modules that will connect the treasury, central bank, Kenya Revenue Authority and other government  financial institutions. The upgrading will end at the end of this month."
