AHADI Kenya Trust has strongly opposed the proposed Bill outlining hefty retirement package for the President, the Prime Minister and other top officials.
Executive Director Stanley Kamau said the money should instead be given to the elderly in the country who are languishing in poverty.
He was speaking at Mweiga at Kieni West during the end of year party for the aged where he donated assorted foodstuff, blankets and other materials. Kamau said the elderly have for a long time suffered over lack of basic needs.
He asked the government to set aside money specifically for them because the retirement fund introduced a few years ago did not materialise.
"We know many of these old people are retired officers who have served the country for many years. Why are the rich receiving huge amounts of money while people like these are left to suffer?" he asked.
