Members of County Assembly who have been up in arms will likely see a pay rise, in the coming financial year if the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) goes through with proposals on wage reviews.

During its presentation to County Assembly Service Boards on the third public service remuneration and benefits review cycle, the SRC revealed a Ksh.10,000 increase in MCA gross salaries.

The current remuneration for MCAs stands at Ksh.144,375 a month with a committee sitting allowance of Ksh.62,400. In the 2023/2024 Financial Year, the SRC proposed gross salaries for MCAs to go up to Ksh.154,481 with the sitting allowance remaining the same. The 2024/2025 financial year salaries will see another upward review to Ksh.164,588.
