SRC approves pay rise for county speakers, MCAs
In the proposed gross remuneration – to be implemented in two phases-
A speaker of the county assembly will have their gross pay move from the current Sh525,525 to Sh562,312 from July 1.
However, the pay will move up to a gross of Sh 601,674 in the 2024-25 financial year when the last phase will be implemented.
Deputy Speakers’ pay will move from the current Sh216,563 to Sh231,722 in the next financial year before settling on Sh247,943 in the 2024-25 period.
This gross pay will, however, exclude the committee sitting allowance which has been capped at Sh62, 400 for one committee per month.
This means that if a deputy speaker sits in at least two committees then they will pocket a total *gross monthly pay of Sh356, 5 22 from July 1 per month.
The amount will rise to Sh372,743 in the 2024-25 financial year.
Majority and Minority leaders will have their gross pay increase from Sh144,375 to Sh191,324 in the next financial year.
