Another Revelation That Has Shown How The President And DP's Offices Spent That Has Angered Kenyans

The Pandora Papers expose in which billions of Kenyan shillings associated with the first family were found to be in offshore accounts left many Kenyans talking. According to the report, more than 3 billion were found to be in offshore accounts but not associated with money gotten through fraud. Legal experts who have weighed in the matter have however said that it is not illegal to own accounts abroad as long as it meets legal requirements.

Another shocking revelation has shown that the office of the president and his deputy spent more than 8.64 billion shillings or four times more on staff salaries and allowances in the year up to the end of the financial year. A report by the controller of budget indicated that president Uhuru Kenyatta's office and that of William Ruto used up to ksh 32 billion in expenditure on salaries and allowances for their staff members.

The information has elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans who have been shocked with the amount of money that usually lands in few people's pockets. Others have however averred that it is a deviation from the highly followed Pandora Papers expose.
