Garissa Township MP Aden Duale has come out to defend lawmakers against claims that they are planning to hike their pay and allowances.

Duale says that MPs have no plan to hike heir pay.

The Garissa Township legislator has termed the claims as pure propaganda meant to tarnish their names.

Speaking to journalists on Tuesday at parliament Buildings in Nairobi, Duale said that the claims are being propagated to create enmity between the public and the MPs.

“The claims are malicious and meant to incite the public against the MPs,” the leader of Majority in the National Assembly said.

Duale said that proposed changes to the Parliamentary Service Commission Bill does not seek for pay hike.

He said that proposed changes are meant to make the commission more efficient and effective.

“The proposed change has included a clause that seeks to enable members discharge their responsibilities effectively and efficient functioning of Parliament,” he added.

National Assembly Minority leader John Mbadi has equally dismissed reports that MPs plan to hike their pay.

Mbadi says that reports about alleged pay hike in media are misleading.

National Assembly Minority whip Junet Mohamed also refutes the claims terming them propaganda.

“The media has gone to the extent of misleading the public, President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga,” he said.

Reports of MPs allegedly planning to hike their pay have been criticised by Kenyans and a section of top politicians across the political divide.
