SRC Announces Harmonized Public Servant Allowances

Public Servants across the country are set to receive higher pay in allowances under a new harmonization structure released by Salaries and Remuneration Commission. Under the new structure teachers who have for a long time complained of pay disparities with their public service counterparts will for the first time benefit from leave allowances and harmonized house allowances. But as Sam Gituku reports, the new allowances structure whose aim is rationalization of the wage bill is bound to raise the current wage bill by up to 15 billion shillings.
