Details Emerge on The Huge Amount Ruto's Gov't Has Decided to Give Gachagua's Wife's Office

Details have now emerged on the amount of money the National Treasury plans on giving Second Lady Dorcas Gachagua's office this coming financial year.

Mrs Gachagua is already busy at work after the new regime came in, and has revealed some of the initiatives she intends to work on.

They include the “The Boy Child Initiative”, which intends to champion for the rights of the make child, now that all the focus seems to be on the girl.

The Star has established that her office is set to receive Sh252 million from the exchequer, to help with running operations in the office.

She is also planning to introduce another initiative which will revolve around salvaging young men from alcohol and drugs to make them responsible.

First Lady Rachel Ruto's office, on the other hand, is slated to receive Sh300 million, money she already has a number of initiatives to spend on.

Mrs Ruto, who was formerly the Second Lady, plans to go big on table banking and environmental conservation during her time at State House.

She seeks to facilitate 1.2 million women to access affordable credit through table banking, in line with her dream to make women more stable financially.

"These programmes encourage women's access to informal credit, give them more power, and lessen gender-based violence in homes," she said recently.

She also plans on availing solar powered stoves for women, a complete departure from her successor Margaret Kenyatta, who focused more on maternal health care.

"Their stoves will enable the use of clean cooking techniques all while improving internet connection," she said.

Her spouse, President William Ruto, has based the formation of his government on the need to empower Kenyans through his Bottom Up approach.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, on the other hand, has been pushing for the interests of farmers and the need to rid them of cartels and brokers.
