He added that a Responsibility allowance of about Sh138,000 monthly.

"It is about Sh400,000 above other members. Those office holders also have staff hired for the, including a researcher, policy analyst and legal officer. These are senior staff picked by the office holder. There is also a secretary, personal assistant and an office assistant. So the moment you lose your seat, those staffs are rendered jobless and the vehicles surrendered," he stated.
