Embakasi East MP Babu Owino, who has in the past month demonstrated near - fanatical support for Odinga, announced that his first monthly salary would be directed to the repeat elections expected to be held on October 17th.

Babu’s announcement on Wednesday came a day after the Opposition coalition made pledges for financial support from their supporters.
ODM Chairman John Mbadi on Wednesday revealed that the party has already received a “good amount” through the donations made through their mobile money paybill numbers.
Mbadi, however, declined to specify the amount raised.
In the new pay structure released by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), MPs will earn a gross salary of about 1 million which comes to about 700,000 after tax. Legislators are entitled to a basic salary of Sh621,250, in addition to allowances totaling to about Sh455,000.
