Why Mandago wants SRC to Increase MCAs' Salaries

Jackson Mandago wants Salaries and Remuneration Commission to increase the Salaries of MCAs by more than 100%.

The uasin Gishu senator made the proposal in Senate giving reasons why he wants the salaries of the MCAs increased. Mandago wants the commission to set the salaries of MCAs at a minimum of sh 400000. The MCAs are currently earning a monthly salary of sh 160000.

According to Mandago the current salaries of MCAs are too low to enable them effectively perform their functions.

"If you look at the salaries of MCAs who are the first line in response in Public issues in this country, their salaries are too low for them to perform their functions effectively" Mandago said.

Mandago further said that while serving as Governor he realized that the level of poverty in Kenya is very high and MCAs handle almost over 10 harambees every weekend. The increase in salaries will facilitate the MCAs whom wananchi look up to for their contribution.

The senator also breathed fire at SRC for always targeting politicians while reviewing salaries of Politicians. According to Mandago the reduction of salaries of state officers by SRC while increasing theirs is itself discriminatory.
