Kenya is in a delicate situation right now as we speak with the COVID-19 pandemic that has wrecked havoc throughout the whole globe affecting Kenya and leaving a trail of misery on the kenyan taxpayers.
As this happens, kenyan members of the national assembly have decided against all odds to travel to the United Arab Emirates specifically in Dubai to attend what they termed as a training on public finance management.
And with the development sparking a lot of furry among many kenyans especially after a social media message on the same by Nyali Constituency member of parliament, details have finally emerged on the huge amount of money the lawmakers will pocket for attending the Dubai trip.
According to The Standard, the legislators earn Ksh 143,000 per day during the trip as allowance for the close to 10 days they are ultimately going to spend in Dubai.
This means that by the end of the trip, the Waheshimiwas will have pocketed a minimum of a cool Ksh 1.27 million package in their wallets.
This is a very huge amount of cash considering the nature of the financial situation the country finds itself in right now.
