Defence CS Aden Duale Declines To Reveal How KDF Spent Ksh.135B, Cites ‘National Security’

According to the report laid before the Security committee, KDF spent Ksh.98 billion in emoluments and salaries, Ksh.28 billion for operational costs of military bases including food

The forces also spent Ksh.1.7 billion on maintenance of major parts and equipment, Ksh.1 billion on civil aid, Ksh.1 billion on border securitization, and another Ksh.4 billion on modernization of KDF equipment.

That was as far as CS Duale was willing to go in breaking down how the money was used, with MPs demanding that the figures be unpackaged further to avoid secrecy and a possibility of embezzlement of funds.

In a stormy session, the MPs clashed with the CS who stood his ground on the need to disclose further information on how the money was spent.
