The Amount of Money That The President and His Deputy Earns

İn Kenya leadership positions are highly coveted because of the privileges that comes along by holding any office in the counties and even at the national level politics.

The highest political office is the president's office, the president is endowed with respect and alot of state priviledges. The president performs numerous tasks in the country including being the commander in chief of the armed forces, he is a symbol of national unity, he presides over national hollidays and events among othwr key functions.

The president's salary is fixed at Ksh 1, 650, 000 per month. The salary is basic hence allowances are not inclusive, per year the president earns more that twenty million tax free Kenyan money.

The deputy president William Ruto who is the official deputy of Uhuru Kenyatta earns around Ksh 1, 487, 000 excluding allowances and if included their net salary will be so much.

The salaries they earn have been admired by many poor Kenyans who do not have even something to comfort their hungry stomachs with also the Covid-19 disease rendering hundreds of thousands jobless the situation is tragic. We ask the government to come up with useful strategies to help recover the economy by providing jobs to the less fortunate.
