Kenya: Managers in KPA to Get Pay Increase

Kenya Ports Authority mid-level managers are set to be paid their salary increase by the end of the week. The managers held a meeting with representatives from the top management at the Mbaraki Club in Mombasa on Tuesday evening.

The managers have been pusing for a pay increase for the past few weeks. Two weeks ago, they staged a sit-in to protest the delay in the increase.

Their salaries are supposed to be reviewed after every two years but the last time they were reviewed was in July 2009. The increase was approved by the KPA board but a change of guard involving the PS at the Transport ministry occasioned the delay.

Attorney General Githu Muigai opposed the move to refer the mater to the Salaries and Remuneration Commission saying KPA is a money-generating parastatal whose worker are not answerable to the body.
