President Ruto holds talks with former President Uhuru Kenyatta over the fiasco regarding the latter’s retirement benefits.

According to the State House Spokesperson Hussein Mohamed, the meeting held on Tuesday, June 11 was centred around finding a solution to the ongoing back and forth between the two offices.

Consequently, Ruto formed a team that will look at the issues raised by Uhuru.

“This morning, President William Ruto had a conversation with his predecessor in office, the 4th President, President Uhuru Kenyatta, regarding concerns about facilitating the functioning of the retired President’s office.

“President Ruto has consequently constituted a team, led by the Head of Public Service, to immediately address all the issues raised, including the location of the retired President’s office and the attendant staff establishment,” read the statement in part.

This comes as parliament summoned State House officials over Uhuru Kenyatta retirement benefits.

“We are instructing our clerks to write to the State House Comptroller to come and appear to the committee on why the former president’s office is not receiving its perks,” Implementation Committee Chair Raphael Wanjala said on Tuesday.

The Committee noted with concerns remarks by the Spokesperson to the Office of the 4th President Kanze Dena that indicated that retired President Uhuru Kenyatta has been funding his own official office.

“We are not going to allow that to happen yet we appropriate money as Parliament,” added Wanjala.

Although the specific dates have not been given on when State House Comptroller Katoo Ole Metito is to appear before Parliament, MPs want the State House representatives to appear before them to ensure the allocated funds are made available for the retired President.
