story on today’s nation…
Should we really be raising the President’s salary? I hate to agree with Raila but there are more pressing salary needs within the civil service in Kenya than Kibaki’s salary.
And why do MP’s get 3 million shillings grant to buy cars? The state should own cars to transport members of parliament during public service.
It doesn’t make sense that every 5 years we spend 3 million each on 220 MP’s for cars. By the way does that mean that when an MP is re-elected they still get another grant for a second car?
As if that is not enough, they want to be given KES 1.5 million grant at the end of their tenure.
We need to get Kenya’s priorities straight. If you count the vehicle grant and term end token for 220 MP’s, it will cost the common mwananchi more than a billion shillings and that is not taking into account their regular salary.
It is grossly overpaying for very little service in return.
