NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 20 – Sarah Jepkemboi Chumo Serem has been appointed the chairperson of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission.

Other members of the Commission are Daniel Ogutu, Sellestine Kiuluku, Serah kinyua, Rtd Brig Samuel Ndururi, Isaiah Kubai, Jacqueline Mugo, Ann Elizabeth Owuor, Peter Oloo Aringo, Jason Namasake, Joseph kinyua, Titus Ndambuki and Wanjuki Muchemi.

“President Mwai Kibaki in consultation with the Prime Minister Raila Odinga has appointed Ms. Sarah Serem as chairperson of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission. The names are contained in a special issue of the Kenya Gazette of today Monday 19th, December 2011,” said a brief statement from State House, Nairobi.

Serem holds a Bachelor of Arts (Sociology and Political Science) and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Nairobi.

She is a member of the Institute of Human Resource Management (HRM) of Kenya and has over 28 years experience in HRM practice and other management undertakings.

Parliament’s Finance Committee approved names of the 12 nominees last Wednesday.
The committee’s chairman Chris Okemo tabled the names and the report of the committee endorsing the nominees except one.

The National Police Service Commission is yet to provide its nominee to the 14 member commission since it is yet to be established.

The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) is expected to regulate and harmonise salaries in the public service.

The SRC is expected to achieve the principle of equal pay for equal work. The Commission is one of those bodies created by the Constitution seeking to ensure equity in salaries across the public service.
The country has recently witnessed rising discontent in critical sectors that seen a wave of industrial action.

A Cabinet meeting on Tuesday last week ruled out any salary review for those in the public sector until the formation of the Commission to harmonise salaries.
