Shock as UHURU approves SRC plan to cut Govt workers’ salary even after the warning-Don’t be surprised to see Govt workers begging on the streets

Sunday March 30, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta, on Saturday, approved a plan by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) to slash Government workers' pay.

Speaking to senior civil servants, diplomats and public policy assessors from the African Union at State House, Uhuru endorsed the move explaining that it was in line with a recommendation from the African Union that advised on good governance.

The President further divulged that the move would reduce the wage bill which was part of his goals when he got into office.

“With respect to the overall cost of operating a devolved system of Government and the ballooning wage bill, appropriate measures have been conceived and are being implemented to address those issues comprehensively.”

"In this regard, I want to make it clear, I fully support the guidelines issued by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) on salary scales for the Public and State Officers.  The Commission’s efforts will help in containing the public wage bill,” stated Uhuru.

SRC recommended abolishing of over 149 allowances currently being paid to civil servants; a move that has attracted outrage among the working class who have warned the Government against going through the plan.
