Kenyan MPs agree to lower salaries after public outcry

by BBC News

The MPs would receive a car allowance of around $58,000, for agreeing to the cut, the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) said.

On Tuesday, protesters in the capital, Nairobi, denounced MPs as “MPigs”.

MPs voted for a $120,000 annual salary in May, in defiance of the wishes of the SRC and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
