A record introduced by the Parliamentary Spending plan Office (PBO) to the MPs during their enlistment at a city lodging shows the Public Depository has previously pre-arranged valuable evaluations I for the 2022/23 monetary year to be regularized by the Public Gathering in accordance with Article 223 of the Constitution.

The strengthening evaluations will be among the principal issues to be managed by the thirteenth Parliament when it begins its sittings before long, despite that it is scarcely three months since the 2022/23 spending plan was appropriated by the Public Gathering.

The consumption is consequently far beyond the Sh3.33 trillion financial plan that was passed by Parliament in June this year.

This implies the public authority should search for additional assets to back the additional spending plan, further extending the country’s public obligation that is projected to hit Sh9.4 trillion by June one year from now.

The country’s public obligation remains at Sh8.7 trillion.
