The Head of State made it clear in a statement following his meeting with World  Bank President Ajay Banga in Germany on Monday that the money will be used to  control inflation, which had caused the cost of living to rise.

He added that a portion of the advance, which is anticipated to arrive in the state’s bank accounts over a three-year period, will also be utilized to address debt vulnerabilities and buffers.”Kenya is grateful for the ongoing financial and technical assistance provided by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Ruto outlined his plans for allocating the combined Ksh2.4 trillion loan. “We are especially grateful to the Institutions for their latest assistance — Ksh1.8 trillion and Ksh687 billion, respectively — which will rebuild our buffers, tame inflation, and address debt vulnerabilities,” Ruto said.
