    Salaries from President down to clerks in the government and local government offices to road sweepers should be calculated as a percentage of GDP these people are “Overhead Costs”, ie. not part of the cash generating work force. They would then be motivated to assist and not hinder the producers and investors!!!

        I wish, and I am serious, the creative productive hard working members of our society support everybody else. This is not a socialist agenda because capitalist investor and business men that create employment are side by side with their workers struggling with the overly expensive, bureaucratic, slow and complicated government departments. It is time people realised that productivity is king when we want to move forward and everything else is an overhead and a burden to be carried by the producers.

    Bwana Mwangi, you represent the sentiments of most Kenyans. The Kenyan politician is a pampered human being who seeks to enrich himself at the expense of the mwananchi. Running for public office means that one is willing to sacrifice the desire to amass wealth to serve the public. MPs are public servants and therefore, have to remind themselves that governments the world over do NOT pay their employees at par with the private sector. The government is NOT in the profit making business and it cannot accord salaries that it cannot afford. Look at the salaries and remuneration packages of MPs the world over. In the US, some Congressional members and Senators share apartments, sleep in their offices or rent bedsitters because they are in the capitol to legislate and return to their home districts to serve wananchi. It is a shame that we give our MPs cars, housing and free medical care. US Vice President, Joe Biden rode the public train from Wilmington, DE to Washington, DC for the 40 years he was a Senator and it was okay for him. he never demanded limos and police outriders. Indeed, most congressional leaders who live along the train corridor from New York and states in between ride public transportation to work. Shame on the greedy MPs who have NOT put in a day’s work yet the first legislative agenda is to enrich themselves. Kenyans, remember we can RECALL MPS and we need to remember this.

    The SRC has done its job and done it right. Any behavior that encourages the greedy MPs can only lead us to the past. And this will send the SRC into early shameful retirement.

    The salaries were set long before the campaign. They thought they could blackmail Kenyans after securing the vote. we have lost faith in them come next elections. The MPS lack the sense of reasoning. they are acting like they are employed . It is disgusting to even think about them as human beings. If they are not content they are free to leave and look for those better paid jobs .No one stops them
