Mbita - The Standard reports MPs may amend the constitution as the last option to secure the higher pay opposed by Salaries and Remuneration Commission and the public.
According to Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo, MPs are set to amend sections of the Constitution that describes them as State Officers, so that they can free themselves from the Salaries and Remuneration Commissionâ??s mandate.
Odhiambo who was speaking during relief food distribution to flood victims at Ogando Primary School in Mbita Constituency said Serem should revisit the decision because it seems her commission is not aware of the financial burden MPs have in discharging their duties.
