See how RUTO and GACHAGUA have secretly been stealing from Kenyans through double payments? No one even noticed this daylight robbery

Saturday July 6, 2024 - The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) was hard-pressed to explain why President William Ruto and his Deputy, Rigathi Gachagua, have been receiving House Allowances when they actually live in state residences; something that has angered Kenyans.

Ruto receives a house allowance of Ksh350,000 per month while Gachagua is paid Ksh300,000 per month.

According to the SRC, the housing allowance is part of the remuneration structure that is used for the salaries of state officers.

The three structures as explained by SRC chairperson Lyn Mengich includes the basic salary, allowances and benefits.

However, owing to the growing concern about public expenditure, the SRC boss noted that the body will be reviewing some of the allowances.

"In terms of the pay structure for public servants, there are three structures.”

“There is the basic salary and allowances and then there are the benefits.”

“Housing and airtime are part of the allowance.”

“It will be part of that review," she stated.

Mengich made the revelation after concerns were raised over the structure which sees the duo earn an allowance for service that is already provided by the Government.

Housing allowance is aimed at helping an individual pay for reasonable accommodation.
