UHURU’s Government now stops the sh1 billion meant to expand RUTO’s office - Is everything okay in Jubilee between UHURU and RUTO?

Tuesday October 2, 2018 - Deputy President William Ruto has been dealt a severe blow in his efforts to expand his office in Nairobi.

This is after the Government of President Uhuru Kenyatta halted the transfer of sh 1 billion that had been set aside for the expansion of his office.

The Government, through the National Land Commission (NLC), halted the payment of sh1 billion for a piece of land meant for the expansion.

The decision was made after NLC received a notice from a former MP, through the Attorney General’s office, indicating that the land was irregularly transferred from City Hall to one Rahab Wanjiru Evans.

NLC acting chairperson, Abigael Mbagaya, revealed that they cannot pay for the plot until the complaint had been reviewed and solved.

“We will review whether the transfer from City Hall was irregular.”

“But remember local authorities had the right to allocate their land to private investors,” Mbagaya said.

Treasury had set aside sh 500 million in the budget for the year ended June for the purchase of the 0.7-acre plot adjacent to Harambee House Annex office. The balance of sh 500 million was to be allocated in the current financial year.
