Friday August 24, 2012 – The Speaker of the National Assembly Kenneth Marende now wants the Salaries Remuneration Commission to increase the salary of MPs.

Speaking at a forum, which saw the launch of job evaluation for State officers and other constitutional office holders on Thursday, Marende drew parallels between MPs’ pay and what commissioners and other State officers earn as he laboured to convince a forum convened by the Salaries Commission, that legislators are the lowest earners.

Marende, who is also the former Emuhaya MP, said the Sh851,000 pay for MPs was incomparable to what other State officers, who Parliament vets for approval for nomination into office, earn.

The speaker said MPs’ salaries and allowances are by far less than Sh1.5 million earned by KRA Commissioner General John Njiraini and his commissioners, who he said take home Sh1 million, and PS in the Ministry of Finance Joseph Kinyua, who earns Sh 1.13 million exclusive of hefty allowances.

He also said MPs earn lower salaries than that of chairman of Commission on Implementation of Constitution (CIC) Charles Nyachae, who he said takes home Sh1.24 million, while members of his commission take home Sh1.14 million.

He pleaded with the Salaries and Remuneration Commission to increase salaries of the lawmakers saying it was not enough to sustain their daily needs.

Do agree with Marende’s assertions that MPs require a pay rise?
