Good News to Graduate Police Officers Who Earned as Low as Sh18 Following New Directives from IG

IG Hillary Mutyambai has accepted to look into the welfare of over 1,000 graduate police officers who are at the level of constables. This comes after their salaries were dramatically slashed in November, which made them raise alarm via social media. According to details, Vigilance House has directed the regional commanders to submit names of the graduate police officers by today. The list is expected to be handed over to President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Graduate officers have also claimed unfairness in their payrolls as details say that they have been committed to servicing their huge loans. This has made them unable to meet their basic requirements including food, medical care and rent.

More shocking details have been unmasked which shows that officers at Job Group J has been receiving Sh9,000 house allowance instead of Sh24,000 and Sh9,000 risk allowance instead of Sh11,000. After deductions, many officers have ended up receiving as low as Sh53 , Sh18 to -Sh7,000.

The graduate police officers had agreed to head to court to sue their employer following the unfair deductions that has left many officers struggling for survival while still in service. However, Bruno Shioso responded to the deductions of graduate police officers saying that the deductions were legal following a court order to slash salaries. But the new directives by Inspector General is new hope for the graduate police who have been suffering in silence with majority surviving on loans due to the bite-sized earnings.
