The government is under intense pressure to raise money and fulfill its budgetary commitments.
This is because it appears that demand for money has outpaced supply.
The most recent indicator is an overdraft facility they chose from the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) for Sh30.2 billion.

Speaking on the fringes of a Senate induction workshop in Mombasa, Prof. Ndung’u claimed that Treasury is currently in dire straits and unable to resolve the protracted impasse with the governors that has resulted in the paralysis of the majority of devolved units.
Ndung’u stated, “We ask them to wait because we are in a financial hole, and that is why we want to tell them to wait as a solution is being found. We don’t have money, and we lack resources.
The Treasury CS requested patience from all government agencies, including county governments awaiting funds.

Dr. Kipsang spoke yesterday at St. George’s Secondary School in Kieni, Nyeri County, in honor of Kieni Constituency Education Day.
According to the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet), over 40,000 examiners’ pay were unpaid last month.
The union lamented in a statement that teachers at St. Francis Girls High School in Mang’u, Kiambu County, boycotted the marking of CRE Paper One because to the low compensation for examiners.
Omboko Milemba, the union’s chairman, signed the statement.
“The assignment came after a hectic school year in which teachers hardly had time for breaks.
Long hours at work
Most importantly, Mr. Milemba believes that poor nutrition and low pay are traits of the profession itself.
Additionally, Dr. Kipsang promised to compensate the contractors who built the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms.
Furthermore, I certify that we are working together with our counterparts at the National Treasury to make sure that resources are accessible. We will follow through on what I told the examiners, he said.
Contractors who built 10,000 CBC classrooms still owe more than Sh7.8 billion.
The best CBC projects
Dr. Kipsang claims that 36,000 new instructors will enhance curriculum in junior secondary schools (JSS).
“We have never been able to hire this many individuals at once. I am aware that the instructors Service Commission (TSC) has already added the new teachers to our JSS,” he said.
In order for some elementary school teachers to successfully teach at JSS, TSC has also been enhancing their skills.
I want to reassure the people that learning is taking place in that particular field.JSS has 1.2 million students.
He claims that the government has distributed 18 million textbooks to the 1.2 million JSS students.
Additionally, JSS earned Sh9.6 billion in capitation payments, with each student earning Sh15,000 per year, according to Dr. Kipsang.
The bulk of the pupils and teachers in Njoroge Wainaina’s area, the MP for Kieni, were found to be drug and alcohol addicts, which was stated as the reason for the fall in academic performance.
“We are asking our parents to take on the responsibility of safeguarding our pupils from the risks associated with drug and alcohol usage.
According to Mr. Wainaina, our deputy president, Rigathi Gachagua, has opened the way for us; it is now up to us to safeguard the future of our children.
He asserted that the problem has led to a poor transition rate for male students to universities as compared to their female counterparts.
“It is truly terrible that just 29% of males and 71% of girls enroll in college out of every 100 kids.
“We must address this issue. According to the MP, I will continue to support and provide adequate money for universal education.
Examiners, on the other hand, claim that since they conducted the marking, there has been a delay in the payment of their debts and bogus promises.
