Why Ken Okoth's family will get Ksh32 million from Parliament

Details have emerged as to why the family of the late Kibra lawmaker Ken Okoth will be getting Ksh32 million from Parliament.

Reports by the Nation indicated that Okoth's family will be given the money which was part of his group life insurance cover and death gratuity.

However, before being given the money, Parliament must first get a letter from the courts indicating the administrator of Okoth's estate.

If the family agree on how to share the money, the name of the administrator must be published in the Kenya Gazette, so that anybody with an issue can come up.

Private family affair

Legislators contribute 12.75 per cent of their salary as pension, which is matched by the State. 

Their pensionable emoluments include salary, responsibility allowance, constituency allowance, nominated member’s allowance, ex officio member’s allowance, house allowance, accommodation allowance and sitting allowance.

The Parliamentary Pensions Act stipulates that only those who serve for two terms or more are entitled to a monthly pension of at least Sh125,000 for the rest of their lives.

The law provides that those who serve less than two terms get a refund of their contribution, with an annual 15 per cent interest.

The family of the late MP stated that details of how the money will be shared are private.
