President William Samoei Ruto moved with speed to swear in his Chief Administrative Secretaries (CAS) after Speaker of the National Assembly Hon. Moses Masika Wetangula rejected their vetting citing lack of constitutional jurisdiction to do that. Immediately after being sworn in, Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) made a review of their salaries and other packages.
According to the new review, the SRC upgraded the new CASs to top six best-paid officials in the public service. CASs will be taking home a basic salary of Sh780,000 after leapfrogging Principal Secretaries. SRC advised the Public Service Commission (PSC) to fast track the salaries increment of CASs from Sh765,188 to Sh780,000 after their job evaluation.
The move to increase CASs salaries at a time when Kenya's economy is allegedly falling has raised eyebrows. Many Kenyans alleged that the government is becoming inhumane while others are claiming that SRC was ordered from above to make changes.
