Fresh Headache To President Ruto After Workers Issued This Demands Before NSSF Increase Takes Effect

Members of the Kenya Union of Domestic, Hotels, Educational Institutions, Hospitals, and Allied Workers (KUDHEIHA) have issued a list of requests to President William Ruto before consenting to the planned rise in NSSF deductions.

KUDHEIHA According to Secretary General Albert Njeru, the 6% contribution rate is too excessive for their employees.

He therefore urged that their monthly pay be raised from the present minimum wage of Ksh15,200 to Ksh30,000.

Additionally, Njeru asserted that workers would be exposed and vulnerable if the deductions were imposed right away.

Additionally, he requested guarantees from the staff that the fund would be properly managed to accommodate the higher donations.

Njeru added that KUDHEIHA personnel required guarantees from the Head of State that Pay as You Earn (PAYE) would not be subtracted from their contributions in order to avoid future double taxation.

According to President Ruto's plan, both employed and jobless persons would be covered by NSSF contributions.

A Ksh200 monthly donation, according to him, is insufficient to help anyone in their old age. He tried to raise it to Ksh 2,000 as a result.
