This Is How Uhuru, Ruto Wasted 1 Billion On Entertainment In Less Than Six Months

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, have gobbled upto 1 billion in less than six months on entertainment, travel and publicity.

The shocking revelations are contained in a report by the Controller of Budget that cast a dark shadow on Jubilee sincerity in fighting graft.

According to the damning report, the office of the President and that of his deputy wasted Sh1billion from 413.9 a year earlier.

Here is the breakdown of how Uhuru and his deputy have been spending taxpayers’ money on frivolous trips and other excesses:

President foreign and domestic trips- Sh319.3 million from Shs 252 m

Hospitality Expnses Rose from- Sh627 Million from Sh154 million

Publicity-Sh 141.5 from 7 million

The President recurrent spending spree shot up to Sh2.9 billion-an increase of 81 percent.

The grim picture painted by the report bastardizes claims by the Jubilee administration that its keen on fighting wastage in the government.
