Kenya: Senator Kindiki Kithure Authorises PSC to Cut His Pay

SENATE majority leader Kindiki Kithure has written to the Parliamentary Service Commission authorising a deduction of 20 per cent from his salary.

On Monday, Salaries and Remuneration Commission chairperson Sarah Serem said it she had not received official communication from President Uhuru, Deputy President William Ruto or MPs who would like their salaries cut by 20 per cent.

"So far we have not received any written communications from the executive or the MPs asking us to reduce their salaries by a certain percentage," Serem said.

In a letter dated March 14 addressed to clerk of the Senate and copied to Serem, Kithure said he is offering 20 per cent of his salary.
