Did we really get rid of the vultures?

30 03 2013

When the current obsession with the supreme court fizzles out, we are surely going to be pre-occupied with the issue of the reduced MPs’ salaries. The Salaries and Remuneration Commission, mandated by the constitution to set the pay and allowances of state officers, recently reduced salaries payable to legislators from Ksh 831,000 to Ksh 535,000. Members of the new Parliament are already crying foul over the issue, even before they begin working. Is this fair? Are they seeking a salary that will compensate the expensive campaigns they conducted? The civil society recently called upon those dissatisfied with the new pay to resign and seek alternative better paying jobs. What do you think?
