Pay rise for ward councillors after MPs doubled their salaries, perks

Government has with immediate effect increased the monthly salary for ward councillors by K50  000 just hours after it has been leaked that members of parliament have fattened their pay cheques.

Across section of the councillors: Pay rise

An internal memo from principal secretary for the ministry of Local government, Charles Kalemba to all city, town and district councils says each ward councillor would now be getting K150 000 up from K100  000 a month.

Kalemba said the increment would be regularized during the mid-term budget review of parliament.

He says the new salaries take effect from January 1, 2020.

Kalemba has since asked the councils to negotiate with banks on personal loans for the ward councilors.

Ministers salaries should be a.mutiple of median (average) salary within the country e.g. 5 times average salary. This would be a great stimulus for them both to educate the population and to improve average salaries.

The next getting increments will be HE and VP himself plus all the Ministers, deputy ministers and their PS’s plus all higher ranking Capital Hill officer’s! Is money a problem? As long you will come not to the privat sector and ask for more tax…!?
But please don’t forget the youth, the education sector and the health sector!

Is this the revival we were dreaming of, when we elected this people into power, or do we slip now back in the old times under the former government?

This country will never develop with such greedy so called politicians. A true political leader would put the needs of the tax payers and poor people first. They are just enriching themselves. We need another revolution and kick out these thieves. They are now contemplating increasing the number of constituencies. For what? MPs are not custodians of development. What development can the MPs point at in the villages? Boreholes by the World Vision? This is a failed state.
