Tuesday, May 30, 2023 – President William Ruto has moved to overburden hustlers after he demanded a whopping Sh2 billion for his foreign trips.

This comes even as Kenya is facing harsh economic times that have been exacerbated by the high cost of living brought about by high taxation by Ruto’s government.

The National Treasury had allocated Ruto Sh700 million for foreign trips in the financial year beginning July 1.

However, Ruto demanded an additional Sh1.3 billion with impunity, raising the figure to Sh2 billion.

And that is not all, the National Assembly’s Budget and Appropriations Committee has also allocated Sh301 million for state protocol and utilities.

Besides, Ruto’s office had also requested Sh2 billion for the utilities, which include cleaning, transport, fuel, and maintenance of Sh500 million, the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development Sh100 million, and African Union Sh150 million, among others.

Recently, the President and his Deputy, Rigathi Gachagua, were on the spot after bursting their full-year budget in seven months.

It was established that the Executive Office of the President in the period through January spent Sh9.09 billion against the full-year estimate of Sh8.64 billion.

    It is official that Top Nema officials in Machakos and Nairobi head quarter are split on a controversial report that has exposed the proprietor of the Machakos based Hotel on massive bribery involving a section of Nema officers.

    The Hotel near Machakos Boys is built on a riparian area and owned by notorious lawyer Wambua Kilonzo.

    Wambua has continued to expand the parking base having knowledge that is a Riparian land

    The Hotel is on the spotlight after it emerged that he colluded with some Nema official to doctor the environmental assessment report to his favour.
    Even with environmentalists citing that the Hotel sits on a riparian land, the owner has continued to develop with the new front right in the middle of the river.
    The lawyer has operated with impunity and thus affected those living down the river.
    Residents who suffer from the raw sewage discharged from the Hotel now petition parliamentary committee on environment to investigate the matter and help prosecute the lawyer.

    • this is just pure politics. Car park can be done in a riparian area. does the hotel discharge raw sewer to the river? i doubt this and if yes, then this is a serious issue.
