Former MPs to receive Ksh 100k monthly pension

The National Assembly has approved payment of Ksh 100,000 monthly to former Members of Parliament as pension.

Defending the motion on the floor of the house was Minority leader John Mbadi who pointed out how the former MPs are earning very little at the moment.

The motion will however see those who served between 1984 and 2001 benefit with ODM MP saying it will not burden Kenyans as a whole.

Joining the debate was Suna East MP Junet Mohamed who said the MPs were living in a poor state.

He continued by noting that them too will one day be former MPs and they will need such support from the governemt.

Aden Duale spoke during the debate warning the legislators that the motion will cause anger among Kenyans.

The former majority leader warned that other former civil servants may lobby for the same increase from the government.

President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to sign the bill into law.
