Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi says the recently launched office of his spouse Tessie Shangatti Mudavadi will not be funded through taxpayers’ funds.
Mudavadi clarified that the Office of the Spouse to the Prime Cabinet Secretary was created to support philanthropic efforts around the country, hence does not require any funding from the exchequer.
"I want to make it clear that there is no public expenditure that has occurred in the conversation around Tessie Mudavadi and I don't see any public expenditure occurring because I truly appreciate that activities of this nature are not government activities," he said.
Mudavadi, who was speaking in Nairobi on Thursday, said his wife was actively involved in charitable acts even before the office was created.
"Mrs. Mudavadi has been in this process whether in or out of government and we shall not stop supporting people in any part of the country through any charitable efforts but I am clear that it shall not be at the expense of the exchequer," he said.
In a statement last week, Mudavadi's communications team said the Office of the Spouse of Prime Cabinet Secretary will complement the work done by First Lady Rachel Ruto and Second Lady Dorcas Gachagua.
Our tax money are wrongly used to fund some useless offices, and that is why we need to know what they are doing with our money.
If it is family business then why are we being told. Mudavadi position is just there to loot Kenya money. It is something that is not needed.
"In a statement last week, Mudavadi's communications team said the Office of the Spouse of Prime Cabinet Secretary will complement the work done by First Lady Rachel Ruto and Second Lady Dorcas Gachagua."
That liason is not free.How does the"complement" work?Could it be that the expenses from Mudavadi's wife would be buried in the expense part of 1st and 2nd ladies income statements.
Yeap,checks from the first lady will say"complements" from first lady.
Iam sure when pressed for clarity,all they can say is that the gains outweight the 'paltry'expanses of the office.
MDVD - dare not touch our money to give your sweetie an office. We work very hard fir our money while all tou do is steal it.
why does the public need to know about it? Shenzi
