The President is expected to present the 2018 budget estimate to the National Assembly this week, despite the fact that the Medium Term Expenditure Framework, MTEF which is the basis for the preparation of budget has not been passed.

The executive and the legislature have not been having smooth relationship and it is expected that the President will use the opportunity offered by the dinner to smoothen the not too friendly relationship between the two arms.
