Senator’s salary: Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi on Tuesday revealed that he takes home only Sh. 640 after deductions.

The Senator was speaking during an interview on a local TV station where he added that he uses the little money he makes to improve the lives of people in his area.

“As Wamatangi, since 2013 I have never been paid a single allowance of mileage even when on official duty outside Nairobi.

“The loans MPs take are deducted from their salaries. My pay slip now reads Sh. 640 after deductions.

“If I did not have a business my children would live in a house but would not eat,” he said.

Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo, on his part on senator’s salary, said he has never been as broke as he is now, adding that since he was elected he has hardly bought anything.

“I have been the Ombudsman and I have been in public practice, I have never been broke like I am now as an MP.

“By the time I was elected, I already had my house in Nairobi, but since I got into office I haven’t bought a house, I’ve hardly bought anything.

“Anything you get as an MP you use it on constituents for the first seven days you are elected,” he remarked.

In 2017, the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), which is in charge of reviewing salaries and allowances of State and public officers, reduced the basic pay for MPs from Sh. 710,000 to Sh. 621,000.

However, their allowances have since gone up. Chairpersons of committees earn Sh. 15,000 per sitting, their deputies earn Sh. 12,000 and ordinary members pocket Sh. 7,000.

They are also entitled to car grants, a Sh. 20m mortgage, car maintenance and a Sh. 10m medical cover (restricted to one spouse and four children).
