Govoverners will learn Sh1,056,000 from the current monthly gross pay of Sh924,000. Members of the County Assembly will earn Sh164,588  from Sh144,375.


The proposed amendments on salaries will be effective from the start of the Financial year, 1st July 2023 and are proposed to run for three years. As Kenyan embraces the reality of the new taxes era, starting tonight, the fuel levy increase from 8% to 16% will kick in and EPRA has indicated new fuel prices and a litre of petrol will go for sh 193.04 and Diesal for sh 177.08.
