Nairobi - The Standard reports civil society leaders have announced a major protest march to Parliament on Tuesday to oppose the push by MPs to disband the Salaries and Remuneration Commission and raise their salaries.
Speaking Sunday in Nairobi, the leaders said their demonstration, dubbed “Occupy Parliament”, will mobilise Kenyans against what they termed as the “greedy MPs” and roll back their quest for more money. They plan to present a petition to Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi.
Rev Timothy Njoya said SRC undertook its constitutional duty of setting salaries of State officers, adding that if MPs have any genuine complaints against SRC, they should go to court rather than going after the commission.
