Moses Kuria says he won’t take his November salary if he’s paid. The Gatundu South lawmaker wants fellow MPs to also go without their salaries for November.
It’s unlikely that legislators will support Kuria’s call to go without their November salaries. Kenyan lawmakers are among the greediest in the world.
Kuria blames Nasa MPs
Kuria says parliament will go on recess again until 29th November. He explains that the August House is barely functional because Nasa-allied MPs were absconding parliamentary sessions.
“Parliament went on recess again today till 29th November as NASA is yet to send its representatives to House Committees. The National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) committees are not in place as a result,” Moses Kuria wrote on Facebook on Wednesday November 8th.
No work no salary
The Gatundu South MP says lawmakers shouldn’t be paid their November salaries since they won’t be working for nearly the whole of November. Kuria calls upon National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi to make sure MPs are not paid November salaries.
“The logical and moral thing for the Speaker to do is NOT to pay us our November salaries. Paying us would amount to stealing from Kenyans. Why pay us when we are neither working in our constituencies nor in parliament? Why reward me simply for staying alive?”
