A dispute on reduced salaries, slashed and abolished allowances for MPs could take a new twist following revelations that the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) misrepresented facts regarding the pay review.
In separate applications filed by former Makadara MP Benson Mutura and activist Okiya Omtatah while seeking to join the legal battle over the MPs’ pay cut, they accused PSC of failing to disclose the true position of deliberations in Parliament on the said issue.
PSC had sued the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) seeking to have a gazette notice which stipulates implementation of the pay cut quashed.
Mr Mutura said he was the one who initiated discussions on abolishing of mileage allowance for MPs through complaints to the SRC.
“PSC has misrepresented the facts about the deliberations of Parliament on the issues at hand. Having sat in that House throughout the deliberations, I believe that I am well versed and competent to inform the court of the correct position,” he said.
