Na 200M ya inauguration ilitoka wapi?!Kenyans Worried after Cherargei Claimed that Ruto only found Sh93.7m at the treasury
Nandi County Senator Samson Cherargei has claimed that President William Ruto only found Sh93.7 million in the Treasury.
In a statement on Saturday regarding the economy, the Senator asked Kenyans for patience saying the matter is being handled to get the country back on track.
“The economy is no longer in ICU But Death because H.E Ruto found only Sh93.7M at the treasury, Uhuru went home with everything. State Capture is REAL !” he tweeted on Saturday.
“The country is broke Kenyans be patient H.E Ruto shall fix this through economic transformation and Prayers from all of us. Amen.”
This comes even as governors are waiting for the government’s directive on the delayed county funding.
Counties have not received funds from the National Treasury for the past three months.
Kisii Governor Simba Arati said they are hopeful that Ruto will keep his word on funding and transfer of functions to counties.
“Counties are staring at a looming workers strike because they were last paid in July. The new governors are not sure of how to deal with this. We hope the monies will be disbursed on time,” Arati said.
Speaking on Tuesday during his inauguration, Ruto said the fuel subsidies had used up a lot of unnecessary funds.
“In fuel subsidy alone, the taxpayers have spent a total of Ksh144 billion, a whooping Ksh 60 billion in the last 4 months,” he said.
He said the plan was unsustainable, as he announced the subsidy’s removal.
