Ali Baba & His 40 Thieves: They’re at it again Folks!

Did you guys catch this article in the Nation? Raila and Kalonzo’s wives are now going to get an allowance totaling about KSh 400,000 a month because according to Matharau Muthaura:

The Government has taken cognisance of the critical role of the spouses of theVP and PM in projecting a positive image of our nation’s family values,” the directive reads in part”.

Is Mr. Matharau out of his fucking mind??

When will Kenyan public officials understand that taxpayer money is not for them!!!! It is for infrastructure development and social programs. Things like roads, public education, public healthcare, etc, etc…..

I am now convinced that Kenya’s economy is going to take a big hit as a result of these exorbitant salaries. You cannot develop a country when 80% of government funds are being used to pay salaries. It’s insane!

Private companies are going to start finding ways of dodging their taxes if this is what the government is going to do with their money. They’re going to start under reporting their revenues and sending that money into bank accounts abroad. Heck, that’s what I would do if I had a company in Kenya and my taxes were just going to pay for these exorbitant salaries. I would under report like a mo’focker and dare them to catch me.

Or I’d seriously consier relocating to Rwanda….

The wives are not elected public officials and thus, they do not deserve even one penny of the publics money.

    makbelly: the MPs are also thieves and will not pass a law that puts a lid on their perks. Kenyans can draft all the bills they want but the MPs have to pass it!

    Instead of just complaining, the Kenyans need to work out a bill that puts a salary cap on elected officials starting with the President and also limits on who gets the govt’s salary. Hell, George W Bush doesn’t even earn 200k a year, and he is the president of U.S.A.

    Even Lucy gets paid for being just that -a wife. Or the official wife.

    I’m on the lookout for jamaas with potential for any of the big 3 offices-as long as I’m the publicly declared wife.

    I cannot even believe Muthaura used that line. I too I’m projecting a positive image of Kenya’s family values! Can I get my dues please! WTF is wrong with these politicians? Next all mp’s will demand that their wives and concubines are compensated. Tena tax free. Sad thing is Kenyans are not protesting. They should be taking to the streets the same way they did in Dec.
