Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has criticized the allocation of Kenya’s national budget by Treasury.
According to Kuria, half of the Kenya budget serves the needs of those employed by the government.
Moses Kuria said this during an interview on Wednesday morning at a local TV station.
“In a budget of Sh3 trillion, half of it goes to people who are employed by the government through recurrent expenditure,” he said.
Kuria also said Kenya is a country of approximately 50 million people with only one million people being civil servants.
“We have to ask ourselves, for how long are 49 million people going to carry the burden of 1 million people?” posed Kuria.
Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich will present the 2019/20 financial year budget on Thursday
