Salaries Wafula Chebukati and other IEBC Commissioners earn monthly

How much do Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission officials earn every month? According to the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati earns a gross salary of Sh. 924,000.

This salary includes a house allowance of Sh. 200,000 and a salary market adjustment of Sh. 169,600.

Additionally, the IEBC boss is entitled to a car loan of Sh. 10 million and a mortgage of Sh. 40 million.

In 2017, the SRC had slashed the basic pay of the holders of independent offices. The IEBC vice-chairperson’s pay slip was retained at Sh. 765,188.

The SRC’s structure showed that commissioners and vice-chairpersons of constitutional commissions, excluding the IEBC, were entitled to a leaner pay of Sh. 621,250 a month, from Sh. 650,000 — a 4.4 per cent cut.

IEBC Commissioners’ jobs come with six-year non-renewable term and other hefty perks as well as an exit package equivalent to 31 percent of the pay earned over the 72-month term.

The Sh. 621, 250 a month pay is nearly 10-times Kenya’s average salary of Sh. 64,854 and only a small class of Kenyans earn this type of pay.

Commissioners also enjoy allowances, airtime, security and chauffer driven official car.

Other benefits include a full medical cover per family for themselves, spouse and up to four children below 25 years and family dependent on the commissioner.
