Nairobi - New Health CS Cleopha Mailu will take a KES 50 million pay-cut to join the cabinet, he has revealed.
Mailu quits his position as CEO of the Nairobi Hospital to take up the health docket.
His yearly salary at the Hospital was KES 67 million, translating to a KES 5.58 million monthly salary.
He will now get a take home of just over a million KES in the Cabinet but he does no issue taking the huge pay-cut to serve the public.
" I have served humanity all my life and this opportunity hands me the chance to serve an even bigger group of people, which I will not let go," he added.
He also declared that his total assets come up to KES 615 million, which he explained he had got thanks to investment in several areas including real estate and farming.
" I have invested over the years," he explained.
Mailu is a former ally of CORD co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka and was a part of his team during the 2013 General Elections.
