Nyachae rebuffs attempts to disband Salaries and Remuneration Commission

Nairobi, Kenya: Constitution Implementation Commission (CIC) has differed with National Assembly over threat to quash gazette notice on MPs salaries and benefits.

CIC in a statement stated that Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) is not required by Constitution to gazette salaries and benefits of State officers to make them effective.

“CIC, therefore, strongly feels that calling for disbandment of SRC is ill-advised, and that there are other avenues that Members of National Assembly can pursue in resolving the conflict over their salaries and benefits,” read part of the Commission statement Monday.

The Nyachae-led commission advised that threats to annul the gazette notice on salaries of State officers will not resolve the stalemate that MPs want to create between them and the SRC.

But as MPs prepare to vote on the Motion on quashing the gazette notice today, CIC has reminded them that they should note the provisions of Article 122(3) of the Constitution, which provides that “a member shall not vote on any question the member has a pecuniary interest”.

The report is scheduled for discussion this afternoon.
