“We have reduced the running cost of government by 50% and also reduced government overhead cost by 12.3%. This saving in overhead cost has been ploughed back into capital projects which will yield significant economic benefits in the future.”
Alluding to one of his electoral promises not to increase taxes, he added that, “Instead, we simplified the tax payment system, and broadened the tax base to capture the informal sector.”
According to further reports, he stated that the education sector was improving, as the number of out of school children was reduced by 10% within two years. Access to education was made free, 5000 teachers were employed and school structures were rehabilitated to ensure continued improvement of the sector.
