No more flowers in public offices, government says

18 November 2015, 19:17 William Korir

Nairobi - There will be no more buying of flowers and printing of calendars and Christmas cards in public offices as the government seeks to cut costs.

Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich said Wednesday that the move would help stop the excess use of public funds on things that are not necessary.

He also banned study trips for public officials as well as directed that trips in and out of the country would only be allowed on very essential missions.

" All benchmarking and study tours for national and county government officials have been suspended with immediate effect," he said Wednesday at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development in Nairobi.

The move will see the government save much needed funds which have in the last few months been under serious scrutiny thanks to a serious cash shortage.

Rotich said that he was optimistic things would improve though in the coming months.

" There are a number of measures that have been taken up by the government that will see things slowly getting back to normal, " he added.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has also previously ordered for the cancellation of foreign trips to save public funds.
