Moses Kuria’s demand to SRC that could anger both Jubilee and NASA politicians

Here is what Moses Kuria wants from SRC

Kuria has suggested that his salary should be slashed in order to help the country get enough money to roll out the free Primary and secondary education scheme.

He went ahead to congratulate the chairperson for revoking sitting allowance for all MPs.

“Dear Sarah Serem. By this post, I authorise you to effect the new salary level for myself. I would even suggest you look for the legal mechanism for cutting my salary by a further 15%. I also commend you for revoking all my sitting allowances, otherwise, if you didn't do so I would have been tempted to also claim for squatting allowances or sleeping allowances.”

The Mp elect added that this will lower his burden as the Member of Parliament for Gatundu South because more money will be available for bursaries.

“If we do that we will reduce the strain on our bursaries thus reducing my headache as Member of Parliament for Gatundu South. Finally Sarah I will be looking forward to working with you in the 12th parliament to reduce the public wage bill and reduce the many political offices in this country.”

However, Kuria said that he will work together with the SRC to ensure the salaries of all MPs is reduced.

“We must work together towards a target if no more than 35% of our budget going to recurrent expenditure and 65% going towards capital expenditure that will spur development, long term growth, and prosperity. It is tempting to ask you not to cut my salary or reduce my sitting allowances” said Kuria in his letter.

He signed off saying he has been pushed by the struggles that a common Mwananchi goes through in order to put food on the table.

Moses Kuria’s Full Post

Dear Sarah Serem. By this post I authorise you to effect the new salary level for myself. I would even suggest you look for legal mechanism for cutting my salary by a further 15%. I also commend you for revoking all my sitting allowances, otherwise if you didn't do so I would have been tempted to also claim for squatting allowances or sleeping allowances.

The Jubilee government will affect free day secondary education in January. I trust that with my reduced salary and no sitting allowances, we can now work towards subsidizing fees in boarding schools or providing free meals for poor malnourished kids in primary schools.

If we do that we will reduce the strain on our bursaries thus reducing my headache as Member of Parliament for Gatundu South. Finally, Sarah, I will be looking forward to working with you in the 12th parliament to reduce the public wage bill and reduce the many political offices in this country.

We must work together towards a target if no more than 35% of our budget going to recurrent expenditure and 65% going towards capital expenditure that will spur development, long term growth, and prosperity. It is tempting to ask you not to cut my salary or reduce my sitting allowances.

But when I think of the kind of a country I will bequeath to my boys Brian and Dennis, I think twice. When I remember that there are families in this country who did not have something for dinner last night, not because they forgot to cook but because they did not have something to cook, I think twice. I hope that other non-political public officers will take notice.
