Teachers Service Commission (TSC), Education, Roads and Defense sectors have received the highest allocation in the estimates of Recurrent and development expenditure for the 2024/25 Financial Year.

National Assembly on Thursday considered the estimates ahead of budget reading next week as the lawmakers raised concern over low allocations on devolved functions such as health.

The Teachers Service Commission will receive Ksh 358.21 billion with State Departments for Roads and Higher Education and Ministry of Defense  allocated Ksh 199.3 billion, Ksh 127.9 billion and Ksh 173 billion respectively.

The MPs, however, raised concern on the allocation for State Departments for Medical Services and Public Health and Professional Standards at Ksh 102.9 billion and Ksh 28 billion respectively saying health is a devolved function.

State Department for Immigration, Internal Security and Water and Sanitation shall receive ksh 14.9 billion, Ksh 35.8 billion, and Ksh 52.4 billion shillings respectively.
