"Sh251 billion [~USD 2.5 billion] mathematical error in the 2011-2012 Kenyan Budget pointed out by Mars Group."

Kudos to the Mars Group for actually reading the budget.

I should add that its not just developing countries that need economists/numerate people. I once had to review a report prepared by a British civil society organisation whose careful analysis revealed that as many as half(!) of the British population earn less than median income.
