Pay-cuts no solution to high government expenditure: Lobby

10 March 2014, 23:03 William Korir

Nairobi - The current pay-cuts being pledged and ordered by the government will not help reduce the high level of government spending a civil society group has said.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has led the government programme to ensure wage cuts across board but the move has irked some who feel that the government should look at different ways of reducing recurrent spending.

The International Centre for Policy and Conflict (ICPC) has said that it does not expect the government to reduce pay of certain individuals because it does not help in the larger scheme of things.

" The government should focus more on the things that matter, not just reducing a number of salaries.

" The only way to effectively and substantially reduce the cost of government is to first rationalize its structure and function,? ICPCs Ndungu Wainaina said Monday.

" It only makes sense to reduce the functionalities in government than to try cut off a few heads which will not help, he continued.

According to Wainaina, the government is missing the bigger picture with the process and must look to better ways of working around the problem.

" There are solutions but the government must look at the ones that make sense.
