This month, teachers and civil servants miss pay increases.

Civil servants now receive new SRC salaries.At the end of this month, President William Ruto announced that government employees and teachers would receive raises. The review process required to account for the increase has not yet been completed by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC).


President Ruto announced on June 30 that teachers and other government employees would begin receiving their increased salaries this month.

The SRC is allegedly working on the review right now, according to the Nation. Two weeks ago, the practice of public engagement came to an end, and the SRC is currently working on the evaluation.


The government agencies that pay teachers and other civil servants will then be able to make the necessary changes after the commission publishes the revised salary.

The Nation was informed by sources that the reviews could not be completed earlier than tomorrow, when many employees anticipate receiving their paychecks.


Civil servants’ SRC salaries have changed.

The amount of additional pay following the raise is another unknown to the workforce.

Knut wants a 60% wage increase for teachers.

In response to a petition filed by Busia Senator Okiya Omtatah, the High Court halted the implementation of the Finance Act 2023, which the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) now claims was also a condition of its agreement with the President.


The court’s ruling prevents the Act’s 1.5 percent housing tax from being deducted from employees’ paychecks. This month was meant to be the beginning.

The SRC and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), according to Kuppet Secretary-General Akello Misori, are both to blame for failing to reach a compromise by the deadline.


According to Mr. Misori, Dr. Ruto and Kuppet held a five-hour “consultative meeting” in May in the State House.


The President assured them at that meeting that teachers will receive a pay increase of at least 10% “when the 2023-2024 Finance Bill is passed.”

The talks between Ruto and the teacher unions have come to a standstill.


“This is a shame because we might be surprised to find out it’s not 10 or 12% as we thought. If that’s the case, it means we’ve been lied to,” he said.


Teachers who talked to the Nation said that their pay stubs had not yet been uploaded to the payment system.

“We’ve asked the TSC many times to review the terms of reference of the joint agreement for 2021–2025, but the SRC and TSC have been putting things off, so there’s been a delay. When the President gave his final approval on this issue, we thought that the Treasury was on board and that the SRC had given other public servants, especially civil servants, a chance to talk about their pay. The President was very clear that this was about a rise of between 7 and 10%. Mr. Misori said, “There shouldn’t be any delay.”

The union had asked the president for a rise of between 30 and 70%, but in the end, they settled for a 10% rise.


Mr. Misori asked the committees to finish the pay rise process since the president and the union had already agreed on the rise. But he said that the deal was not written down and that it had nothing to do with their support for the Finance Bill 2023, which was before Parliament at the time.

I’m circling the drain.”

Teachers are struggling because of increasing taxes and high inflation, which the government promised to help them deal with, but the TSC and SRC are still running in circles, according to Mr. Misori.


Senior government officials, including himself, his deputy Rigathi Gachagua, lawmakers, Cabinet secretaries, chief secretaries, house speakers, and judges, according to Dr. Ruto, stand to lose from the attempt to examine wages.
