(Bloomberg) — Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta signed a supplementary budget, enabling the release of 73.4 billion shillings ($723 million) to fund government services and projects for the period through June.

Treasury wants to continue funding projects including improving manufacturing, housing, health care and farming to boost economic growth.
