Kenyan MPs Secure Lavish Lifestyles For Ex-MPs and Themselves

The passage of the 2019 Parliamentary Pension Amendment Bill means the government will be required to pay at least U.S.$11 million to the former MPs who served between 1984 and 2001. If President Uhuru Kenyatta signs the bill into law, the National Treasury will be required to set aside at least U.S.$1 million every financial year to cater for the monthly pension of the 150 lawmakers who served during the time. This happens as the country battles a major debt problem. The Treasury has also started to audit the spending of billions of shillings in taxpayers' funds and loans from donors such as IMF meant for the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and the locust invasion.
