Mp Kaluma Hints On His Bill To Abolish Sitting Allowances For All State Officers and SRC Changes

Hon. George Kaluma, a member of parliament, has threatened to introduce a bill in the coming months that would abolish sitting allowances for all state officials and convert SRC into a part-time commission. 

The member of parliament made this disclosure after finding that independent commission members receive a meeting allowance of 50,000 Kenyan shillings. It was suggested to file a measure to abolish sitting allowances since calculations revealed that it amounted to more than $1 million in pay per month, which is a significant sum of money. Different perspectives have been expressed on this by Kenyans.

Hon. George Peter Kaluma tweeted, “Members of Independent Commissions, including SRC, receive Sh.50,000 Sitting Allowance per meeting; on top of salary which is over one million per month. I'll bring a Bill to remove Sitting Allowances for all state officers and to make SRC a part time Commission in the new year.”

The following demonstrations below shows what different Kenyans had to say about the matter.
