Will The Dissenting Commissioners Continue Earning in The Likely Event They Lose Their Jobs?

Independent electoral and boundaries commission commissioners led by Vice chair Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi and Justus Nyang'aya got suspended from the commission at the verge of the start of a probe against them. Justus Nyang'aya has since then decided to resign from the commission as now all eyes are set to see the fate of the other three commissioners.

President Ruto formed a tribunal that will investigate into their conduct to determine whether they are guilty or innocent and they will table a report before the president to take an action on the report within 30 days.

It has now emerged that the four commissioners will continue to draw their salaries even though they are dismissed, they receive a gross pay of Ksh.9.2M annually. This is because it is in line with articles (41)(1) and (2)(b) which spell how dismissed employees should be treated. The commissioners are currently drawning half of their salaries amd benefits as they await their final fate.

Thank you.
