Nakuru County asssembly adjourns indefinitely

20 September 2013, 12:43 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru County assembly on Thursday adopted a motion to adjourn sittings until the Salary and Remuneration Commission (SRC) increases their salaries as agreed earlier.

While tabling the motion at the floor of the house, Biashara Ward Representative, Stephen Kuria, said that the SRC chairperson Sarah Serem has been playing games with members of the County assemblies over pay.

Kuria said that adopting the motion would give SRC ample time to pay Ward Representatives their dues.

He said that the current KES 79 000 that the MCAs are receiving is not enough compared to their work.

“Recessing our sittings will give the Serem commission time to pay us as a greed because we cannot continue working under the remuneration were received at the end of the month,” he said.

In a debate that took more than one hours, the MCAs decried bias by the SRC saying it was only giving into the demands of MPs while neglecting the needs of Ward representatives.

They also questioned the integrity of the SRC saying it should be disbanded and a new taskforce formed to look into their needs of County workers.

Bahati Ward Representative, Peter Nderitu, who seconded the motion, took issues with the Central Government for not taking County governments seriously.

“It is now close to three months since the Central Government through SRC promised to addressed our issues but so far nothing has been done,” he lamented.

He said that failure by the SRC to pay them as required will be promoting corruption at the County level.
