Billions on BBI? Govt is losing Sh2bn daily to graft: Kenyatta

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 18 – President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday defended government spending on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) constitution review quest saying Sh2 billion was being embezzled by public officials on a daily basis anyway.

Kenyatta made the revelations during a recorded radio interview broadcast on Inooro FM where he spoke in his native Kikuyu language.

An anticipated BBI referendum in June, a joint initiative of the Head of State and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, has been projected to cost Sh14 billion.

The debate on how much money government was spending on the initiative has attracted wide criticism with former presidential candidate Ekuru Aukot faulting Treasury after it emerged that the BBI taskforce had absorbed Sh10 billion as of April 2020.
