The office of the President on the other hand, spent Kshs155.8 million in the same period which was a decrease from Kshs167 million in the same period last year.

The funds were reportedly spent on entertainment, hospitality, reception and catering.

Broken down, the office of the president, the Interior ministry and that of Foreign Affairs accounted for 53 per cent of the total budget of the money spent by the state on entertainment.

This comes after President Uhuru Kenyatta proposed the reduction of taxpayer’s money spent on non-essential functions such as travel and catering.
