It was a courageous move on the part of President William Ruto and his cabinet to forego their one month's salary so that the funds might be put toward reducing the impacts of the drought across the country. The president of Kenya and other workers in the country made the courageous move a few days after the government issued a pay bill number encouraging Kenyans to donate a portion of their paychecks to help alleviate the effects of the drought.
The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) has determined that a cabinet secretary should get a gross pay of Ksh924,000. On the other hand, the president of Kenya, William Ruto, receives a monthly salary of 1,443,750 dollars, while his deputy receives 1,227,188 dollars. Taking everything into account, the Kenyan government is likely to forego a total of Sh23,922,938. The president, his deputy, 22 secretaries of state, and the attorney general are the members of the cabinet. In all honesty, I enjoy watching this program.
That is to say, President Ruto and his administration encourage Kenyans to engage in acts of kindness, and they have set an example of how this should be done. Having stated all of that, what are your thoughts on the courageous action that the leaders took? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
