Narok Senator Ledama Olekina has expressed his disappointment over staffers of Parliament who are yet to receive their dues despite the Members of Parliament getting their salaries on time.
Taking to his Twitter account, Olekina stated that despite the fact that the country is broke, the government is now focusing on issues that are not of priority to Kenyans.
"Let’s be candid! Kenya is broke! Or we got our priorities all twisted. Most staffers of parliament have not been paid yet WE members of parliament were paid on time! And we are now talking about BBI hapa kuna shida jameni!.." he tweeted.
His remarks comes a day after Lyn Cherop Mengich who is the Chairperson Salaries and Remuneration commission okayed Ksh 4.5 Billion for car grants to Members of County Assemblies.
This move attracted backlash from not only Kenyans but also political leader opposing the BBI report.
Kenyans took to social media pages rubbishing the move penning down the economic strains the citizens have been thrown to by the adverse effects of coronavirus and increased taxes.
