Kenya social protection scheme headcount revealed that 14,262 dead people are still on the government payroll. According to the records, it was revealed that the majority of the beneficiaries used ATMs hence became hard to track them.

“Recently, Inua Jamii clinics were conducted countrywide to ensure proof of life and 14,262 deceased beneficiaries were exited from the payroll,” said Social Protection Principal Secretary Nelson Marwa.

The Social Protection Department also linked the delays to an upgrade of their bank accounts to allow access through biometrics to curb fraud.
During the year, some 54,000 beneficiaries missed out on the March pay because they had not opened accounts in the four accredited banks.
