Kaimenyi: Pay-cuts must be across board

11 March 2014, 21:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi has said that pay-cuts must be accepted across board if they are to have the desired impact.

Kaimenyi, speaking at a forum organised by the National Council of Churches of Kenya NCCK, Wednesday also urged the church and leaders in the country to embrace ideas to reduce poverty.

The government is on a campaign to reduce spending by encouraging pay-cuts and the cabinet is the first to agree on the initiative.

Other sectors have also been urged to follow the same route and help reduce spending, a proposal that has been acknowledged by some and refuted by others.

Kaimenyi though, says that the issue of pay-cuts must not be taken as a threat by the government but as a way of reducing the overall levels of poverty in the country.

" We must be objective with the issue of pay-cuts. Yes they will not be effective if only a few are doing it which is why the president has encouraged it to be done across board, he said.

He added that it was vital for all leaders including those in the church to view the initiative as a way of reducing poverty.

" We have to consider those who are way below where we are. We want to reduce poverty, that is the most important thing, he added.
