Kenyan President William Ruto has approved salary increment of between 7 to 10 per cent for civil servants beginning July 1, 2023.
The President indicated that the increment will apply to civil servants below the level of Principal Secretary.
“I know there is a proposal by SRC for the increase of salaries of different cadres of both civil servants and other public servants.
So our teachers, policemen, military space, and those working in government, we have agreed that from July 1; your salaries will be adjusted between 7 and 10 percent,” Ruto said during the launch of the new e-citizen platform.
The president has also asked SRC to hold off on adjusting the salaries of State officers including himself, his deputy Rigathi Gachagua, Cabinet, and Principal Secretaries, saying those can wait.
