The National Assembly has slashed Sh37.6 billion off the Sh3 trillion national budget.

The MPs reduced the budget during a heated debate on Thursday morning ahead of their deliberations on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s memorandum relating to fuel and other new taxes.

Most hit include ICT ministry which lost Sh5.9 billion and the school laptop programmes whose allocation was reduced by Sh5.5 billion.

Others are: the last mile electricity project (Sh1.5 billion), emergency road repairs (Sh8.7 billion), Equalization Fund (Sh3.8 billion) and Sh600 million allocation for Parliament’s new office block.
