Yesterday, the President of the Republic of Kenya William Ruto appointed 50 CAS members who will be approved by the Parliament. If the officers are approved, then it is reported that they will pocket a hefty salary of over 765,188 Kenyan shillings as gross monthly salary.
In addition, each of them will get a car grant of up to 10 million Kenyan shillings and a mortgage allowance of up to kes. 35 million. This has been criticized by many Kenyans who claim that the number of these CAS is too high and catering for their salaries at this time of the economy will add a burden to taxpayers.
The president appointed big names, especially those who supported him during his presidential bid but failed to win their respective bids. With the likes of Millicent Omanga and Chrisantus Wakhungu among the big names so far.
