Since the announcement that William Ruto had finally settled on a 50 men and women for the Chief Administrative Secretaries (CAS) there has been a lot of discussion on the motivation behind that expanded list given the economic impact it will have especially on public funds.
Some Kenyans have argued that the list is so big and irrelevant and that having so many CAS will not add any economic impact to the Kenyan economy but instead it will burden them more as taxpayers will have to dig more to pay for those salaries and other upkeep costs.
The chair of Ruto's economic advisors David Ndii ignited a heated debate online after he said that the 50 CAS will only cost Kenyan taxpayers only Kshs 450 million representing 0.075% of the National wage bill. His remarks has however attracted mixed reactions with some saying that the funds are enough to put up 4600 Junior Secondary School classrooms.
"For the record, the payroll of 5O CASs (Sh450M)is 0.075% of the national government wage bill (Sh600B) less than 1/1000th." David Ndii said in defense of the 50 CAS salaries.
"And you have balls to put it as if it's nothing. Imagine 450M can build 4600 JSS classes." Black Superman posed to Ndii.
Ndii was however quick for reply where he asked the concerned Kenyan of the JSS classrooms will campaign for them in the next generation elections.
"And the classrooms will campaign for us next elections?" Ndii's brutal reply.
