The additional funding is set to cover salaries for newly established offices and increased operational expenses.
The budget increase for the office of the president would total Sh3.1 billion, which has 13 important offices, including offices for the council on climate change, economic development, and women’s rights.
Sh166 million and Sh81.3 million will go to the offices of the deputy president and prime cabinet secretary.
“The net change of Sh2.6 billion under current expenditure is on account of additional funding to cover shortfalls in personal emoluments and operations and maintenance expenditures for new offices in line with Executive Order 1 of 2023,” Treasury said.
