Nairobi - The government is planning to spend close to KES 2.5 billion to celebrate Kenya’s 50 years of independence, which has drawn wide outrage across the country.
Members of the civil society led by their chairman Morris Odhiambo said the lavish spending does not add any economic value to the country, especially if you consider that almost 50 percent of Kenyans are still living in poverty Capital News reports.
Odhiambo went on to add that the country does not have sufficient resources for such a celebration but instead needs to save more for development purposes.
