Monday June 22, 2020 – Garissa Township MP, Aden Duale, was axed on Monday as Leader of Majority in Parliament and his position taken by Kipipiri MP, Amos Kimunya, who is a close confidante of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Following his sacking, Duale will lose hefty perks including allowances, official cars, bodyguards and a huge office with support staff at Parliament Buildings.
Currently, a Majority Leader takes home Sh 1,056,000 monthly salary and since he has been ousted, Duale will now earn a normal MP’s salary of Sh 650,000.
The MP will also lose offices and extra staff who were fully paid by the Public Service Commission.
In terms of salary, Majority and Minority Leaders earn slightly over Sh200,000 and responsibility allowance of about Sh138,000 monthly which Duale will now not be entitled to.
Duale will also lose three top of the range GK vehicles that were at his disposal and a package of Sh 300,000 monthly for hospitality.
Duale was removed by Jubilee Party because there are plans to change the laws including the constitution and Uhuru and his advisors felt that Duale cannot push the agenda as needed.
