The First Lady Rachel Ruto’s office is set to get a major boost in resource allocations in the financial year starting July.

In a report tabled by Cabinet Secretary for National Treasury Njuguna Ndung’u, Rachel’s office budget will increase by 17.3% to 696.6 million in the new financial year.

The additional allocation will be used for salaries.

However, in a sharp contrast, the allocation to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s spouse has dropped from 717.6 million to Sh557.5 million, a decrease from the previous year’s Sh1.3 billion.
