Government Responds To Uhuru Kenyatta’s Claims of Frustration Over Retirement Benefits

In a detailed response to former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s recent complaints, President William Ruto’s administration has dismissed reports of alleged frustrations concerning Uhuru’s retirement benefits.

On June 10, Uhuru, through his spokesperson Kanze Dena, accused the government of withholding millions meant for his office.

Government spokesperson Isaac Mwaura countered these claims, providing a detailed account of the benefits and support currently afforded to the former president.

“The Office of the Third Retired President admits they have been provided with vehicles. We only differ on the number. The fact is that they have been provided with 14 vehicles,” Mwaura stated.

He further clarified that these vehicles, which include luxury models such as two Range Rover Autobiography and a Mercedes S600L, are fully fueled through the State House Master Card.

Addressing complaints about the condition of the vehicles, Mwaura pointed out that they were purchased between 2020 and 2022, making them suitable for a retired president’s status. Despite Uhuru’s office claiming the vehicles were old and unworthy, the records indicate they are relatively new and luxurious.

In addition to the current fleet, Uhuru’s office has requisitioned four brand-new vehicles at a total cost of KSh 140 million. These include high-end models such as a Range Rover Vogue (First Edition) and a Mercedes Benz 5500.

On the topic of staff intimidation, Mwaura also responded to allegations of the Kenya Kwanza government intimidating Uhuru’s staff at midnight via phone calls and failing to renew crucial contracts.

Kanze Dena highlighted that her contract as director of communications, along with that of administrator George Kariuki, had not been renewed, attributing this to the current regime’s tactics.

Despite these accusations, the government maintains that all necessary provisions and respect for the former president’s office are being upheld, countering claims of deliberate frustration or deprivation.
