Amid the biting cost of living, there is a proposal by the SRC to increase the salaries of state officers. The commission has put forward a plan to raise the salaries of senior government officials by varying amounts, ranging from KSh 50,000 to KSh 200,000, starting in the 2023/2024 financial year. There will be another increase in the following year as well.
The SRC aims to raise President William Ruto’s salary from KSh 1.44 million to KSh 1.56 million in the 2023/2024 financial year, and then further to KSh 1.65 million in the 2024/2025 financial year. Over the course of two years, Gachagua’s pay will be increased from KSh 1.23 million to KSh 1.4 million.
Similarly, the salaries of the head of the public service, Cabinet secretaries, attorney general, and secretary to the Cabinet will be raised from KSh 924,000 to KSh 1.06 million during the same period.
