For­mer coun­cil­lors seek­ing Sh18bn retirement pack­age

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - COUNTY NEWS - — Joseph Openda

More than 300 for­mer coun­cil­lors in Nakuru County have urged MPS to back the Bill rec­om­mend­ing a Sh18 bil­lion gra­tu­ity pay­ment. The for­mer ward rep­re­sen­ta­tives ap­pealed to the law­mak­ers to en­sure the award is ef­fected. Led by Nakuru branch com­mit­tee chair­man Sam­son Mwi­rigi, they urged the govern­ment to award them the retirement pack­age, say­ing the one-off pay­ment would not cost tax­pay­ers much. More than 12,000 for­mer coun­cilors coun­try­wide are ask­ing for a one-off hon­o­rar­ium of Sh1.5 mil­lion and a monthly stipend of Sh30,000. They said Sen­ate Labour Com­mit­tee has al­ready rec­om­mended the award.
