Kenyan diplomats in poverty despite multi billion budget
“Some of us when we go to the missions we are really ashamed. They were really broke. They told us that when the landlords want to evict them from the consulates, they have to say they are not Kenyans so as not to give the country a bad name,’ said Shill as quoted in the newspaper.
Shill also added that over 50 missions had money problems and could not pay salaries and rent.
According to the government’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kenya has 55 missions abroad.
