Uhuru defies public debt, goes on yet another trip

27 October 2015, 16:22 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has left the country for yet another trip overseas despite ridicule over excess government spending and lack of money to use on vital projects.

The government is in the midst of a serious cash crisis which has seen public debt rise by over 300% and government agencies lacking in basics.

And with Treasury admitting that there is a problem, the executive has not shown any signs of tailing off as the President leaves for yet another trip.

The head of State left the country Tuesday afternoon for India where he will attend the Asia-Africa summit for heads of state.

It is estimated that the government has borrowed thrice as much already as the previous grand coalition government did it ten years in power.

The move comes as various employees are yet to be paid their dues and some agencies have been denied services due to accrued debt.

Financial expert Njeru Wamae says that the continued spending is sad for the country.

" We are in crisis and you would expect the President to try his best to stop the rot but he is not and it is a concern," he stated.

" Treasury is in a hole right now but with these continued trips, the President is sadly not giving the best example," he added.

The President will be in India for four days.
