Wetangula Assures MPs of their Car Allowances, Mileage and mortgage

MP allowances

National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula has assured Members of Parliament that their car allowances, mileage reimbursements, mortgage and other benefits will remain intact.

Speaking during an induction workshop for MPs, Wetangula who is also the incoming chairman of Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) said he has held consensus talks with the Salaries Remuneration and Commission (SRC).

The SRC abolished sitting and mileage allowances for Members of Parliament with effect from August 9.

MPs earn about Sh5,000 for every sitting and the abolishment of the allowances for plenary sessions in the National Assembly and Senate is meant to ease the pressure on the public sector wage bill which is currently at Sh930.5 billion annually.
