Kenya’s next president will inherit a heavily indebted government struggling to pay its debts but must borrow more to stay in business, the latest report on the state of public finance indicates.

The report by the Controller of Budget shows a massive shortfall in revenue collection and slow disbursement of donor funds have pushed the government into a deep financial hole, throwing a number of programmes in disarray.

This is part of confidence building mechanisms before the country make the transitions from the Kibaki presidency to the new administration.
