In his last annualised pay, Mr. Gachora was paid a total of Sh. 94.9 million. This was for the year ended December. This salary was equivalent to a monthly pay of Sh. 7.5 million.

This means that Mr. Gachora is one of the best paid CEOs in the country currently.  Nonetheless, this salary was a drop from the Sh. 98 million pay that he got in the 2017 NIC financial year.

John Gachora’s salary comprised a salary of Sh. 61.5 million or Sh. 4.8 million per month, cash awards (Sh. 26.7 million) and retirement benefits (Sh. 6.6 million).
