The Controller Of Budget has released a report on how money has been used in various government ministries and departments in the financial year 2020/2021.

The report seen by Nation has indicated that government officials used 3 billion for foreign travel this financial year alone.

At second place was parliament. Members of parliament used Ksh 823 million to fly abroad this year. Parliamentary Service Commission used Ksh 432 million, Parliamentary Joint Services Ksh 161 million and Presidential unit Ksh 84 million just to mention a few.
