SRC dis­crim­i­nates against grad­u­ate teach­ers as they earn peanuts, says MP

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

The Salaries and Re­mu­ner­a­tion Com­mis­sion has been ac­cused of dis­crim­i­nat­ing against some civil ser­vants. Bomet Cen­tral MP Ron­ald Tonui said the com­mis­sion, chaired by Sarah Serem, has not har­monised salaries for govern­ment em­ploy­ees. He said while other civil ser­vants en­joy good perks, teach­ers con­tinue to earn “peanuts”. Tonui said he will soon present a pe­ti­tion in Par­lia­ment for the SRC to re­lease guide­lines on har­mon­is­ing teach­ers’ salaries. He ques­tioned why grad­u­ates work­ing with the Par­lia­men­tary Ser­vice and the Ju­di­cial Ser­vice com­mis­sions are paid more than their teacher coun­ter­parts. Tonui said the en­try salary for grad­u­ates at the two com­mis­sions is Sh120, 000 per month, while grad­u­ate teach­ers take home a pal­try Sh24,000 per month. The MP said dis­crim­i­na­tion against teach­ers must be con­demned. He said the pay should match their work.
