Kenya Denies Ksh4bn State House Facelift

pilule geneva;”>In a statement issued on Tuesday evening, physician State House described “Star” newspaper headline “State house set for Ksh 4 billion facelift” as “inaccurate and malicious.”

“The reports are malicious and are intended to create an impression that the State House of President Uhuru Kenyatta is insensitive to public spending,” the statement read in part.

“The truth is that the proposed recurrent and development expenditure for the seven state houses and lodges located across the country as captured in the 2013/2014 estimates is Ksh 1.8 billion.”

Kenya State House further noted that out of this, the repairs, routine maintenance and facelift have been allocated only Ksh 300 million.


“The budget estimates are a public document that are open to public scrutiny and should be accurately interpreted to avoid creating wrong impressions, especially at a time of increased expenditure demands by both the county and central governments,” the statement noted.
