What you need to know:

  • National Assembly Clerk Michael Sialai Rotich said the estimates are expected on Tuesday but added that no indication had been given.
  • The Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) pointed out missing information and said the next spending plan will not be policy-driven.
  • It now remains to be seen whether the Treasury will have adhered to the changes when the 2017/18 budget is presented in the National Assembly.

The Treasury is expected to table national budget estimates this week, amid concern over the soaring public debt, which has more than tripled in the past three years.
