Of the total budget, Shs6.4m will be spent on fuel for 12 pickups, five intelligence vehicles and 10 motorcycles. Diesel for the pickups, up to 960 liters, will cost Shs4.3m; 300 liters of petrol for intelligence cars will cost Shs1.5m while 100 liters of petrol for the motorcycles will cost Shs507,000.

Besides the budget for fuel for security vehicles, officers, including the Resident District Commissioner (RDC), will get allowances to the tune of Shs125m.

For seven days, the RDC will get Shs160,000 per night, meaning he will earn Shs1.12m for one week.

A total of 164 officers will earn Shs96,000 per night for seven days, totaling up to Shs110m.
