He says those tasked to deal with making further cuts, are in the process of doing so.

There are prominent things that the handbook will reduce and those include the buying of expensive vehicles, which will ensure that we are not seen to be exploiting the last cent of the fiscus. We want to deal with the whole issue of transportation of ministers as well as security upgrades.
