Can we pay the MPs and move on!!
Our members of parliament are against their salaries being reduced to 540k from over 800k. We called it “greed reloaded.” We called the honorable members “thieves.”
For once I agree with these fellows who are not always so honorable, if they are thieves then it means we are thieves too just like Adan Duale said. We elected them to represent us, they are a sample of us and they just represent the nature of our society which is greedy by whichever way you look at it.
Let us just try and be real with each other here, if you were in that house would you not ask for the same? Who loves their pay being reduced for any reason? Not me and I am sure about you too!!
Having said that, if you lived in an Mp’s shoe for a day you will realize they deserve every bit of it. Do you know that our MPs have a huge portion of their constituents who rely on their support for so many things? Church harambees, School bursaries, medical emergencies, funerals etc.
If you go to these MPs rural homes where the people they represent live their gates are never closed!! Then tell me you wan’t them to survive on 540k and do all that? Really!!
