PSC should scrutinise payroll for MPs

By Enock Mukila | December 10th 2015

Investigations conducted by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) have revealed that former MPs are still earning salaries.

It is also disheartening to note that some current MPs sign attendance lists for their absent colleagues to receive sitting allowance.

Falsification of mileage claims was also revealed as a tactic MPs use to receive cash from the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) fraudulently.

It is also appalling to learn that sacked Cabinet secretaries will continue enjoying their monthly salaries till 2017 as their contracts dictate.

According to EACC, MPs’ payroll is not scrutinised after it is prepared. PSC should therefore thoroughly scrutinise the payroll to ensure that nobody receives what s/he does not deserve.
