Ukur Yatani tells off DP Gachagua over Sh93m Treasury balance

Published on

Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani has told off leaders claiming that the current administration only found Sh93 million in the public coffers.

The CS said that the claims are misinformed and were made out of ignorance.

“Government does not collect money and store it in one place, keep it for one month and later distribute it after a few months or after one year,” clarified the Treasury CS.

The CS treasury was responding to claims made by Rigathi Gachagua, the country’s number two official, that the National Treasury had no funds to allow the new administration to swiftly implement campaign promises during the first 100 days in power.

“We have inherited a dilapidated economy. We have found empty coffers. There is barely any money in this country and we are starting from scratch. I have asked the people of Kenya to be patient with us because we have a plan but it cannot be immediate because we have found a bad situation in terms of the economy,” Gachagua told NTV on Sunday during an interview.

“We don’t know whether to sympathise with the situation because there is a lot of misconception. Government does not collect and store money,” pointed out Mr Yatani.
