UHURU KENYATTA’s TNA MP becomes the first to say there is NO NEED for HIGHER SALARIES

Friday May 31, 2013 - An MP associated with The National Alliance (TNA) party, has become the first lawmaker to distance himself from the quest for higher pay.

Limuru MP, John Kiragu, said he is comfortable with Sh 532, 000, since he was elected to serve the public but not to solve his selfish needs.

Speaking at a burial on Thursday in Limuru town, Kiragu said some MPs are not in parliament for money but for service to Mwananchi.

“There are more important things to talk about in Parliament besides our salaries .We need for example to discuss where we want our people to go, where they will seek treatment and other such pertinent issues,” Kiragu said.

He said the Salaries Remuneration Commission (SRC) should be left alone to carry out its mandate because they have the “capacity to sort out the issue”

“Whatever they agree we shall go by it, an engineer does not go to parliament to make more money. Infact by going there, you are going to earn less than you are earning when outside. 

But we are there because there are certain things we need to deliberate on for the development of this nation,” The MP said.

He urged the media to give a black out to MPs clamoring for higher pay, and instead focus on other issues such as insecurity.
