Kenya: Supplementary Budget II Estimates Tabled in Parliament

Nairobi — The Supplementary Budget II estimates have been tabled in Parliament.

In the national government expenditure, recurrent expenditure has been increased by Sh23.2 billion while development expenditure has been reduced by Sh40.8 billion.

At the same time, sectors under the Big Four have received additional funding.

The Department of Health, for instance, has received Sh18 billion, Investment and Industry has received Sh3.5 billion while Agriculture and Irrigation have been allocated Sh1.1 billion.

A supplementary budget is a request to Parliament for additional spending of public funds after the budget has been passed.

In January, Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich said the government will reduce expenditure on non-core activities in order to fund key priority areas.
