As elections are scheduled to take place on August 9, the current administration of Jubilee is moving closer and closer to its conclusion. Kenya has been governed by Deputy President William Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta Kenyatta since their respective elections in 2013 and 2017. These elections took place ten years ago. After serving for two terms, the latter has decided to step down and retire. If the current budget forecasts hold, Mr. Kenyatta would be handed a send-off gift worth 72 million dollars in 2022/33. However, if his campaign to succeed his boss in the elections on August 9 is unsuccessful, his Deputy William Ruto will suffer a severe loss as well.
As stated in a supplementary budget that the Treasury Department presented to the National Assembly, Deputy President William Ruto, along with the two speakers of Parliament, will receive a combined total of Sh164 million in retirement benefits for the calendar start in June of the following year.
Even at that time, it was unclear how much of the farewell present the DP would receive because it was being split between the two speakers as well as other departing state leaders like Kalonzo Musyoka, Mudavadi, and Raila Odinga, who served as Prime Minister from 2007 to 2007.
