President, his Deputy, CSs, and MPs to Get 14 Percent Pay Rise in New SRC Proposal

1 min read

The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) has proposed a review that would give state officers, such as the President, the Deputy President, Cabinet Secretaries, and MPs, a 14 percent pay increase on average over the next two years starting next month in order to protect them from the rising cost of living.

President William Ruto’s monthly gross remuneration package will rise by 7.1% from July 2023 to Sh1,546,875 from Sh1,443,750 currently before a further 6.7 percent jump to Sh1,650,000 from July 2024.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s monthly compensation will rise to Sh1,367,438 from Sh1,227,188 at present from July 1 before hitting Sh1,402,500, representing a cumulative 14.3% jump in his remuneration package over the two years.

The remuneration of Cabinet Secretaries goes up by a similar margin, rising to Sh1,056,000 per month from July 1, 2024, from Sh924,000 at present.

Members of Parliament, including senators, will earn Sh741,003 and Sh769,201 in the two upcoming financial years respectively from Sh710,000 currently, representing a cumulative 8.3 percent wage increase in the period.

However, the revised remuneration package to MPs and senators excludes committee sitting allowances which are capped at Sh120,000 per month.
