Scrap MPs sitting allowances, Muturi demands

13 November 2015, 18:58 William Korir

Nairobi - Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has called for the scrapping of allowances for members of Parliament, saying that they are paid salaries to work.

Muturi said Friday that MPs are public servants and with their salaries among the best for legislators in the world, should not earn much more.

He stated that the current state of the public wage bill does not allow for MPs to get extra allowances.

" The wage bill is already bad enough as it is and MPs earn well. They are also public servants and should not be paid extra to sit on committees and normal house sessions," he said.

In a move that will likely cause uproar from MP's Muturi stated that Kenyans deserve value for money and that they already get enough from MPs without having to pay some more.

" The country has a ballooned wage bill and we can help reduce it by reducing allowances," he added.

MP's in general earn as much as KES 800,000 in salaries and allowances and also pick up travel perks as well as sitting allowances for normal house sessions as well as Committee meetings.

Kenyan legislators are among the best earning in the world.
