Treasury Cabinet Secretary (CS) Njuguna Ndung'u

Drama ensued in the legislature when lawmakers of the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition rushed out just as Treasury Cabinet Secretary (CS) Njuguna Ndung'u started going through the 2023–2024 budget.

There was uproar, as shown in a video viewed by sources, as the Treasury CS stepped on stage, ready to deliver the Ksh3.6 trillion budget estimate.

The MPs yelled indignantly as they exited the parliament as the CS struggled to read the budget.

The CS began to speak before the previously mentioned MPs halted, saying, "It is a tremendous honour and pleasure for me to give to this assembly and all the citizens of the Republic of Kenya, the first budget of the Kenya Kwanza government.

The CS proceeded to read the budget after they had departed.

"Mahustler musilale, lale lale, wakenya msilale, lale lale, bado mapambano mapambano," was a song that all of the MPs who subsequently gathered in front of Parliament chanted in unison.

"The Kenyan people, who had previously been battling to endure the hard times, were treated unfairly by the budget, "the MPs said.

The parliamentarians said that they oppose the budget while also criticising the administration for consistently disregarding Kenyans' needs to achieve their objectives. In addition, they vowed to support Kenyans no matter what happened.

"We left because Azimio doesn't support this budget," said Azimio. They do not believe that this budget is intended for the citizens of Kenya.

According to Junet Mohamed, the minority whip in the National Assembly, "this budget is intended for the Kenya Kwanza administration."

Therefore, we won't participate until a budget that is based on the needs of Kenyans is established.
