The government provided an explanation for why, in spite of the tight cash situation at the Treasury Ksh2.4 billion was set aside for purchases such as pencils, aprons, brochures and lesos.
According to a Ministry of Energy and Petroleum document obtained by Kenyans.co.ke the ministry planned to spend money on a wide range of things for a public relations campaign.
The document states that Ksh70.5 million has been set aside for the purchase of 1,000 lesos for each county, and that Ksh211.5 million and Ksh11.75 million will be used to purchase 3,000 aprons and 500 caps respectively.
The government also planned to spend roughly Ksh14.1 million on 3,000 pens each county and Ksh23.5 million on 1,000 t-shirts per county.
However, a ministry representative said the program which was started while Monica Juma was the Energy CS will go for three years.
The ministry official stated that 60% of Kenyans will have adopted clean cooking stoves by the end of the three-year implementation of this strategy. The official added that the goal was to ensure that all Kenyans had access to reasonably priced, dependable, sustainable and modern energy.
