MP Muthomi Njuki disassociates himself from salary hike demands

By - | May 18th 2013


Kenya: Chuka-Igambang’ombe MP Muthomi Njuki has disassociated himself from demands by his fellow MPs for a salary increment.

Njuki instead asked Kenyans to maintain the attitude they have held towards the MPs who want their perks raised.

Speaking at the sidelines of a graduation ceremony at Presbyterian Teachers College-Rubate in his constituency, Njuki pointed out that not all the MPs were demanding for the hefty perks.

“Some of the MPs entered the house earning Sh50,000 and they got Sh500,000 which is quite big for them and they are contented with it. Some of us didn’t join parliament so as just to earn money, we have worked for many years without pay serving the people,” said Njuki.

The MP stressed on the need for servant leadership and vowed to serve the country irrespective of the salary that they get.

Speaking at a different function, Embu Women Representative Rose Mitaru said the issue of the MPs salaries should come next after service delivery to the people.

“I never went to Parliament because of the so much money or not so much money. I went with an expectation to serve the people of Embu. The issue of salary will come later after service,” said Mitaru.
