SRC has failed in its job to regulate state salaries

Tuesday March 21 2017

Salary disputes continue to make headlines everyday, a confirmation that the Sarah Serem-led SRC has miserably failed to streamline public service salaries.

SRC lacks due regard to inflation and the general cost of living. SRC did the unexpected when it awarded MCAs fat pay cheques.

Just the other day, the President and his deputy got a 10 per cent pay rise.

Strikes have become the norm — doctors, lecturers, teachers.... But maybe the most laughable scenario exists at Kenya Railways Corporation, where each department has its own payroll with different salary structures!

The four-year-old incessant “job evaluation” hymn should surely end.

Shebah Mmera, Kakamega.
