This comes on the background of an ongoing health crisis where doctors and nurses are on strike demanding better pay

Kenyans were obviously not too pleased by the news and rightfully said so

“Who says there is no money to pay doctors? Former presidents Mwai Kibaki and Daniel arap Moi will see their pension increase by 15.6 per cent next year, reflecting the burden to taxpayers of keeping the former heads of state happy in retirement” Epraim Njega posted.

The High Court last year stopped payment of allowances worth millions of shillings to the two former leaders, saying they were an unnecessary burden to the taxpayer.

However the Attorney-General successfully appealed the decision, allowing the two to continue enjoying the hefty allowances.

The supplementary budget indicates that the former presidents have a separate benefits budget, which currently stands at Sh58.8 million or Sh4.9 monthly. This budget will remain unchanged next year.
