Is the government stealing in the name of el nino?

19 October 2015, 09:55

Nairobi - The government plans to buy 4 000 packs of sanitary towels at a cost of KES 6 000 each, which is far way above the normal price of about KES 200 per pack.

This is in preparation for expected el nino rains, which the weatherman predicted would affect 85 percent of Kenyans.

The government has also proposed to buy 1 000 bars of soap for KES 37 500 each, Daily Nation reports.

Other items in the budget include; 4 000 mosquito nets worth KES 3.2million, 20 000 blankets at a cost of KES 20 million, 5 000 tarpaulins worth KES 133 million and 5 000 mattresses at a cost of KES 15 million.

The government had set aside KES 5 billion emergency funds for the rains that had been predicted to start in October until January 2016.

However, the National Disaster Operations Centre has defended the inflated budget saying that no money has been spent so far on the items as the proposal is in the hands of donors for scrutiny.
