State House makes KSH 158 billion blunder
Statehouse spokesperson Kanze Dena on Friday made a mistake of KSh158.5 billion in her communication about the China loan.
In a statement Kanze said that Kenya had secured Ksh226 billion contrary to the real figure of KSh 67.5 billion deal that was signed by president Kenyatta.
Netizens were puzzled by the difference of Sh158.5 billion that it took Presidential Strategic Communications Unit (PSCU) four hours to realize the mistake.
“The projects include the Konza Data Centre and Smart Cities Project to be undertaken by Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei at a cost of Shs 175 billion and the construction of the Nairobi JKIA to James Gichuru expressway on a PPP arrangement by the China Road and Bridge Corporation for Shs 51 billion.” Read the earlier statement from PSCU.
