Members of the National Assembly have revealed a Ksh. 400 million a secretly operated presidential kitty. The members of the public service commission in a meeting with Labour Principal Secretary Nelson Marwa demanded that the government should come out clean about the presidential kitty.
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.
The Public Service Committee which is led by Ugunya Mp Opiyo Wandayi quantified that the secretly operated presidential kitty did not benefit the rightly deserving needy students and awarded to the undeserving ones. It was further explained that the kitty was benefitting students from specific ethnic backgrounds.
