Anjera warned youth who had planned to demonstrate for delay in payment, he said the workers should raise their complains to chiefs and ensure they present the right information,
Chiefs were also directed to manually mark the register every day to ensure the right workers are paid.
In Ongata Rongai Ward Kandisi area some of the workers had threatened to protest after delay in payments.
Director Housing (Kajiado) Ruth Njoroge apologized to the workers saying they are yet to be paid because of wrong data entry, officials concerned will submit the right data for processing of their payments in a week’s time.
“Long procedures are involved, the money is sent to Safaricom, ensure the number you registered with is yours and MPESA should be activated,” she said.
Ngong Municipality Manager David Kobaai said the process is open and every worker will be paid, he said the project is beneficial in growth of the municipality. The youth will also be involved in beautification of the towns.
