President Kenyatta has said he fully supports the latest efforts by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission to tame the ballooning public wage bill.
The president on Tuesday said slashing salaries and scrapping some fat allowances would ensure prudent use of public resources.
He called on Kenyans to support and cooperate with the commission as it seeks to save Kenya over Sh8 billion a year.
The president, the highest-paid civil servant, is among State officers whose pay was hit in the new pay structure.
The Head of State’s monthly pay was reduced by Sh206,250 to Sh1,443,750 from Sh1,650,000 in the changes that will take effect after the August 8 General Election.
