The Salary and Remuneration Commission (SRC) announced salary increments for state officers, members of parliament and cabinet secretaries effective July 1, 2024.

The Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi’s salary increased to Ksh990,000 per month while the National Assembly Speaker’s salary increased to Ksh1.2 million per month. MPs and senators’ pay increased to Ksh739,600.

A governor’s pay has been adjusted to a scale of Ksh990,000 and the MCAs will take home Ksh164,588.

However, the proposed salary rise has faced a backlash from a section of the legislature who have rejected the increase.

Here is the list of the politicians who have declined the pay rise.

“MPs and other state officers should not be added even a coin. It’s sad to increase salary while Kenyans have no jobs, Kenyans have no capital to start businesses, Kenyans have no money to pay school fees, No money for medication. Say NO to salary increment,” he said.

“(The) Salary increase proposal by SRC for MPs and Senators is insensitive and ill-advised. The discussion should to CUT not Add. I reject any increment and welcome deduction of salaries for All state and public workers like myself. It’s time to REVIEW government structures,” She stated.
