Kinyua Reveals What Pushed President Ruto's Inauguration Ceremony Cost from 250M to 330M

The Assumption of Office of the president Committee in its budget indicated that president William Ruto's Inauguration and swearing in ceremony would cost the taxpayers a whooping two hundred and fifty million ( 250 M ).

However, in his report of the event, the former head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua has revealed that the ceremony cost more than what the committee had budgeted. According to Kinyua, the ceremony cost eighty million ( 80M ) more than what had been budgeted. The taxpayers coughed 330M for the ceremony as revealed by Kinyua.

In the report that has already been tabled in the National Assembly by Majority leader Kimani Ichungwah, Kinyua argued that the cost went up because of the unprecedented number of foreign heads of state and other special delegations that attended the swearing in ceremony.

The committee, under-estimated the number of invited foreign heads of state that would attend the ceremony causing a sharp difference between projected and actual costs.

About 56 foreign delegations attended president William Ruto's swearing in; the delegation included; 19 heads of states and 37 delegations ranging from from former presidents, prime ministers and country representative. pg 7.
