Over Ksh400 Million Allocated for State House & Office of Deputy President Upgrades


The Kenyan government has allocated over Ksh400 million towards the rehabilitation and maintenance of the State House in Nairobi and the office of the Deputy President, currently occupied by Rigathi Gachagua. According to budget estimates tabled before the National Assembly, both were listed under the Executive Office of the President and will undergo significant upgrades to ensure smooth operations.

Prioritizing Upkeep and Functionality

In addition to the State House upgrades, the State Department of Interior and Government Services spent Ksh125 million for general administration and support services. On the other hand, the Ministry of Transport, led by Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen, secured funding for various road projects including the Nairobi Eastern Bypass and the construction of Thika Town roads.

Meanwhile, the MPs, led by Speaker Moses Wetangula, are set to deliberate on the budget estimates and amount disbursed when the August House resumes. Wetangula stated in a notice that the budget-related business will be a priority during this session and that the supplementary estimates and budget policy statement will be given priority consideration.

In an effort to tackle debt, the Treasury proposed a reduction in domestic borrowing from Ksh581.7 billion to Ksh415.5 billion. As the government invests in upgrades and infrastructure, Kenyans can expect a more functional and efficient State House and office of the Deputy President.
