SENATE Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki has said he will introduce an adjournment motion in the House to discuss ways of reducing the national wage bill.
Speaking on the sidelines of the Kenya Alliance of Resident Associations workshop on county governments, Kithure said this week he will introduce a motion seeking the passing of resolutions that will see Senators' pay cut by 30 per cent.
This comes as the nation grapples with the huge wage bill, with elected members being accused of being the biggest public spenders.
"Anyone in this county who earns above Sh300,000, in country where poverty is on increase is unfair to the system, the reason we must all get into this debate of reducing the public wage bill," he said.
He said if the public wage is not managed well the country may "choke" from the burden of an increasing recurrent expenditure.
Apart from cutting on the wage bill the Meru Senator urged government to reduce public wastage but cutting now on number of cars government officials use as well fight graft within public service.
"Pay cuts will make a small saving, the bigger savings will be made through prudent use of public resources and total stemming of corruption," he said.
