Raila Gains As Ruto Suffers Cuts in New Budget Proposal

The 2020/2021 budget estimates indicate that Deputy President William Ruto is set to see some huge budget cuts as ODM leader Raila Odinga gains favour.

While the official budget is yet to be announced by CS Ukur Yattani on Thursday, the estimates show that DP Ruto has suffered a budget cut from Ksh 2.4 billion to Ksh 1.4 billion.

His office, however, is not the only one to be affected by the cuts. The State House budget has also seen a reduction from Ksh 5.4 billion to Ksh 3.8 billion. The Cabinet Affairs budget also saw their budget reduced to Ksh 2.2 million to Ksh 2.8 million.

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was the biggest beneficiary as the treasury allocated funds for his office. The treasury allocated Ksh 71.9 million with Ksh 26 million aimed at securing luxury cars for his office.

Another Ksh 10 million has been allocated for furniture, Ksh 20 million for insurance and Ksh 10 million for his staff.
