No Mp's have requested pay-cut: Muturi

18 March 2014, 19:41 William Korir

Nairobi - No member of parliament has so far asked to take a pay-cut, speaker of the national assembly Justin Muturi has said.

The speaker also said that it was in the power of individual members to choose to take the pay-cut or not.

He further added that it was the duty of the Salaries and Remuneration Commision SRC to handle such issues and not him.

Muturi was reacting to queries over his role in the pay-cut matter, which has been the point of conversation since president Uhuru Kenyatta said he expected public officials to take cuts to their huge salaries.

Parliament had initially been quiet over the issue, but addressing the house Tuesday, Muturi said he would not stand in the way of Mps who choose to take pay-cuts.

" Any honourable member who chooses to take a pay cut is free to do so but must go to the right authority which is not parliament, he said.

" There is a commission led by the grace Sarah Serem and if anyone feels the urge to take the cut they should address it with her.

He also added that no one so far had approached him to take a pay-cut.

" No one has come forward so far but they now know where to go to, he added.

The pay-cut matter was brought to the fore by president Kenyatta who said that government officials will take pay-cuts to reduce the public wage bill.

He also intimated that it would be done across board and that other top ranking officials would be forced to take the cuts.
