Baringo - Kenyans have been urged to put the interests of the country first as the government tries to come up with ways to tame the rising wage bill.
Retired President Daniel Arap Moi said the problems that the country is facing can be solved locally without the intervention by outsiders, The Standard reports.
He said the government should get rid of current expenditure which does not match the available resources as one of the measures to tame the wage bill.
President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and Cabinet Secretaries agreed to take pay cuts as a way of reducing the wage bill.
The president also said parastatal heads should emulate the executive and accept pay cuts since the government cannot sustain the current wage bill.
