‘Tighten your Belts!’ Uhuru Warns Public Servans

President Uhuru Kenyatta has proposed a reduction on expenditure across all arms of government.

In an address to the nation on Friday, he noted that despite the move to raise revenue through tax on petroleum products, the country still faces a huge financial gap.

“These cuts will target less essential spending like hospitality, training and seminars, foreign and domestic travel and other similar categories,” the President said.

In March this year, Treasury CS Henry Rotich revealed that Kenya has a budget deficit of Ksh.587.7billion with a planned expenditure of Ksh.2.49trillion.
