Tuesday November 20, 2018 - President Uhuru Kenyatta has blasted MPs who are scheming to revise their salaries at a time the nation is struggling with a bloated wage bill.
Uhuru was thunder-struck when he learnt of reports that Members of Parliament were allegedly plotting to hike their pay through the back door.
He chided the plans noting that it was unfortunate for the country to be drawn to a debate on lawmakers pursuing better salaries while the electorate was struggling to keep up with tough economic times.
“If we were a wealthy nation, no one would have a problem even if you wanted to earn a million.”
“Kenyans do not have access to basic needs but you want to increase your salaries!”
“I do not intend to have disagreements with anyone, but there are issues we must discuss," noted President Uhuru.
