Two Kwale leaders have opposed the call by President Uhuruto parastatal heads to take a pay cut. Former Msambweni constituency aspirant Richard Osongo termed the move dictatorial and unconstitutional.
"If we have to solve the issue of public wage bill in this country, we should conduct a referendum and revert to the old constitution," he told the Star on the phone yesterday.
Osongo said forceful reduction of civil servants' pay will take the country back to the colonial rule. Msambweni MP Suleiman Dori said Uhuru 20 per cent pay cut is nothing new.
"He is not the first person to do that because the former nominated MP Mohamed Dor gave half his salary to locals. When I am ready to give mine I will make it public too," said Dori.
