To solve the wage bill bur­den, em­power SRC

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

The au­dit re­port rec­om­mend­ing a re­duc­tion in the num­ber of MPs and MCAs is wel­come con­sid­er­ing the ever-bal­loon­ing wage bill. The re­port rec­om­mends re­duc­tion of law­mak­ers’ al­lowances and re­trench­ment of re­dun­dant staff. Un­for­tu­nately, it is likely this will not be im­ple­mented be­cause its ap­proval de­pends on Par­lia­ment. This will end up be­ing a waste of pub­lic re­sources since none of the pro­pos­als is likely to be ap­proved. This calls for the SRC’s em­pow­er­ment to han­dle all mat­ters re­lated to salaries and re­mu­ner­a­tion.
