Twitter Web Client : It is my responsibility to put Kenyans first, those living today, and your children, who will inherit the country tomorrow. That means I must balance between short-term pain and long-term gain. We have a country to transform, and we must make bold decisions to achieve our vision.

Twitter Web Client : Specifically, I have increased funding to the Judiciary to speed up the completion of cases concerning corruption and economic crime. Further, I have increased the allocation to the ODPP_KE and to the investigative agencies.

Twitter Web Client : I want to assure Kenyans that their taxes will be used well. That is why, in my memorandum, I propose to increase the resources available to the institutions entrusted to fight corruption.

Twitter Web Client : These budget cuts ask of us in government that we tighten our belts. It also ensures that the sacrifices made by tax-compliant Kenyans are matched by discipline from all of us in the public service.

Twitter Web Client : But we still face a financing gap. This measure will not suffice to balance our budget, as required by law. Therefore I have also proposed wide-ranging cuts in spending as well as austerity measures across all arms of government.

Twitter Web Client : Just as business owners took the new VAT rate as an opportunity to increase the cost of goods and services, I expect them not to take advantage of weary citizens, and to lower their prices commensurately and without delay.

Twitter Web Client : I have spent the last few days listening to a wide cross-section of views. It is clear that you are all troubled by the effect of the rise in the prices of petroleum products, and its impact on the cost of living.

Twitter Web Client : Having transferred over a trillion shillings to county govts since 2013, we've seen major improvements in service delivery and improvements in the lives of Kenyans. That’s why we'll continue to protect & entrench devolution & the new constitutional order, notwithstanding the cost

Twitter Web Client : As you can see, the enjoyment of our new rights is expensive, unprecedentedly so. We are very proud of the speed with which we have implemented the new constitution, and devolved government to the people.

Twitter Web Client : We also have forty-seven governors, forty-seven deputy governors, and forty-seven new county assemblies – in which sit more than a thousand MCAs. Additionally, we have sixteen independent offices and commissions, excluding the judiciary.

Twitter Web Client : With it, we have seen a substantial increase in political and bureaucratic representation at every level: we now have two houses of Parliament; the National Assembly has grown from 290 to 349 members; and our new Senate has 67 elected and nominated members.
