Uhuru's former legal advisor shames Jubilee gov't over judiciary budget

Rare comment

Mohamed said it was unjustifiable that the amount of money allocated to the Judiciary was lower than what had been allocated in 2012, while the other arms of government have received increased allocations since then.

"How can the Judiciary Budget allocation be less than what it was in 2012.when the National budget and that of Parliament have ALL gone up by over 50% during the same period," the former State House official tweeted.

“We are at a loss on what to do with the allocation as it is now, it means a number of projects especially on construction across the country will literally stop affecting service delivery,” Maraga said on the development.

The Judiciary had Judiciary requested for Sh31.2 billion to support its operation in the 2018/19 financial year but ended up with Sh14.5 billion, most of it going to recurrent expenditure.

Deputy President William Ruto has since promised to resolve the matter.
