Saturday June 3, 2023 – President William Ruto and his Deputy, Rigathi Gachagua, have increased their salaries and allowances even as they keep complaining that the economy is battered thanks to former President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to the budget which is set to be read this month, Ruto and Gachagua are among the few civil servants that will receive salary increments in the next budget.

Budget details contained in the Parliamentary Budget Office report for the 2023-2024 financial year show that the country’s two top offices and those of some commissioners and independent commissions are set for a two percent rise in salary and allowances.

This will see the President, his deputy, and the commissioners take home an additional Sh110 million in salary and allowances increments.

Already the country is struggling to meet its current recurrent expenditure which is expected to increase to Sh2.48 trillion in the next financial year.

“The salaries and allowances are mainly salaries to the President, Deputy President, and other commissioners and independent office holders,” reads the parliamentary budget office report.

This comes even as the president, through the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) declined to increase salaries for civil servants who are being targeted by the controversial Finance Bill.

Ruto wants all salaried employees to part with 3% of their monthly salaries to fund his housing project.

  1. In Kenya we have a big problem with so called educated leaders people like president Ruto zakayo and Confused Deputy gachaguwa,Even president Museveni of Uganda is more wise and focused than Ruto:-
    1. Ruto is not a leader he came for revenge and steal from Kenyans citizens who work hard and weakup every morning to put warm plate for their children and generations to come.
    2.Ruto is educated and not a leader with useless papers,a leader is born not made, a leader does not revenge and loot from his own citizens and a leader is not given or choosen by few individuals or community seated at a round table last a leader comes with humbleness and faith from the people with forgiveness.
    3.Ruto your not a leader a cuckóon in other word ,you have no difference with Administrator lecturing mature men and women like children sometimes as a parent you néed to seek advice wise men and women with values and opinions, a cukoon chick has no time to learn this behavior, nor does any parent stay around to teach it, so it must be an instinct passed on genetical and engineered that’s what you’re.
    President Yoweri Museveni is a true leader and a legend focused and mature in leadership he protects his citizens not with iron fist,he is a true revolutionary and a champion African leader to make it worse A father of East Africa even the deligates of European Union take a good forcus at Museveni wheñ he talks and fully respects Uganda constitution. president Ruto he came to kill and loot from Kenyans and a dictator.

  2. It is a shame for the president to increase his packs and that of the deputy president and constitutional office bearers yet other civil servants are stagnating in their job groups.
