Addressing the press, the President called on civil servants to back the new structure stating it was fair.

“The recommendations also provide a clear and transparent guideline to test fair pay and non-exorbitant pay.

“I call upon all Kenyans to support the new SRC recommendations to ensure Kenya thrives,” the Head of State said.

The President said it was a fair way of containing the ballooning wage bill for civil servants.

According to SRC, President will earn a monthly gross salary of Sh1,443,750 down from Sh1.6 million.

The Deputy President will earn Sh1.2 million down from the current Sh1.4 million. Cabinet Secretaries have also been slashed to 924,000 from 1,056,000.

MPs will now earn 620,000 down from 710,000.
