The legislators further claimed that the kitty was being operated secretly with some claiming that it never even existed at all. The presidential kitty is said to be shared among 290 constituencies with each one qualifying for Ksh. 1.3 million which have been meant to benefit 45 needy students each receiving Ksh. 30,000.

Labour Permanent Secretary Nelson Marwa further assured the committee that the ministry was working to ensure the situation is handled to ensure fairness while distributing the kitty.
