Kenyans online have come out hitting at the government after it announced the increment of President Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto’s salaries.
According to a treasury document the combined annual pay of President Kenyatta and DP Ruto will rise from the current Sh36.6 million to Sh38 million.
This came after the pay for the President, his deputy and other top government official were to curb the rise in the wage bill.
The cut saw the president’s salary drop to Sh1.44 million a month from Sh1.65 million, while his deputy took home Sh1.23 million from Sh1.4 million.
However, Kenyans did not feel the vibe following there are public servants who have been crying out to the government to increase their salaries including nurses and teachers.
