Although it has been claimed that Uhuru was one of the few ministers who had no scandals attached to their name, on 29 April 2009, he faced a controversial scare after he presented a supplemental budget that was inadvertently approved by the parliament. The budget was aimed to bridge the budgetary gap that had arisen due to slow economic growth. The government required an additional Kshs 38 billion, but compromised on a figure of Kshs 22 billion and non-essential proposed expenditure was postponed as a result. After voting on the bill brought forward by Kenyatta, Gitobu Imanyara raised discrepancy questions as to what exactly had been approved by the house. It appeared that the parliament had approved a budget of Kshs 31 billion as opposed to Kshs 22 billion that they thought they were voting on – a difference of Kshs 9. 2 billion. The Deputy Prime Minister initially defended the approval but later admitted that there were computer or typographical errors in the budget bill. Amid the raging debate about the contentious issue, the Speaker ordered the CID and a parliamentary committee to question him on the discrepancies. He was later cleared of any wrongdoing by the Joint Finance and Budgetary Committee.
