Treasury has allocated the President an additional Sh725 million for catering and other hospitality supplies in the supplementary budget.
In the mini budget announced by the Parliamentary Budget Office, the Presidency was apportioned the colossal amount despite an earlier regulation requiring state departments to cut down on the expenses.
Senators have also been allocated Sh336 million for monitoring and evaluation of the county governments issues.
“However, it is noted that some agencies have had their estimates increased despite a Treasury circular requiring all agencies to adopt austerity measures in the aforementioned vote lines,” said the analysis prepared for MPs.
Ruto was also awarded an extra Sh100 Million for traveling after exhausting the Sh61 Million he had been allocated in the last financial year.
