MPs delete KES2b clause

12 December 2012, 12:05

Nairobi - The Standard reports that Members of Parliament on Tuesday deleted a clause that gave them a send-off package of KES 9.3 million each before passing the Finance Bill.

The MPs agreed with President Kibaki’s memorandum that termed the proposed ammendment as unconstitutional as it usurps the powers of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission which is charged with the review of salaries of state officers.

The Bill, which outlines various taxation measures by the government and legalizes the collection of taxes, was passed by Parliament in October by the President declined to append his signature owing to ammendments that sought to increase the MPs’ winding-up allowance to KES 9.3 million each at the end of their term.
