MPs currently earn a gross pay of Ksh. 621, 250/-. The gross pay comprises basic salary (60%) and allowances (40%), inclusive of house allowance.

The recent push by MPs for an increase in their housing allowance raises questions as to how this will affect the ordinary citizen. What are your thoughts?
Join us together with our guests, Ben Nyabira and Irene Otieno on 17th July from 5-6pm!
