Nairobi - Officials of the Constitution Implementation Commision CIC have taken home as much as KES 35 million each in allowances of their tenure.
In records seen by News24, the 9 Commissioners were awarded as much as KES 315 million each in allowances for the year ending December.
That translates to as much as KES 35.7 million for each of the Commissioners.
The hefty allowances are pegged on the need by the Commision, which has now been expired, to meet on several occasions to thrash out pending Constitutional matters ahead of the dissolution.
CIC Chairman Charles Nyachae stated that the Commision had indeed met on a great number of occasions.
" As you know, it has been frantic in the last 6 months. We have met alot and had many extraordinary meetings," he added.
The Commissioners take home a basic pay of KES 700,000 a month.
Nyachae had earlier in the year stated that most Commissioners were of the opinion that there was no need to extend the tenure of the CIC.
MPs later on chose not to.
