Uhuru, Ruto, cabinet agree to pay-cut

07 March 2014, 17:03 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto together with the entire cabinet will take pay-cuts in a move to lessen tax-payer burden on government spending.

The president said the move would be aimed at helping the government reduce spending on recurrent expenses.

The top two will each take a 20% pay-cut with the other 18 cabinet secretaries taking a 10% pay-cut in a landmark announcement.

The president, speaking at the cabinet retreat in Nanyuki Friday said that his government would do its best to ensure that spending would focus more on development.

" My deputy and I will take a 20% pay cut and cabinet 10% cut to ease spending on public coffers. If we continue spending KES 400 Billion, we are left with only KES 200 Billion to transform Kenya, we must stop that, hew said while making the announcement.

The pay-cut will be one of a number of cost cutting measures the government will be taking in the coming months and according to the president they are on track.

" We are on track. Not everything has gone the way we wanted but we have done well, he added.

The president also promised to lean towards efforts that help the country secure its food security, end joblessness and create equity in the coming year.
