Mumias East Mp Peter Salasya has stirred social media after sharing his payslip online. The vocal MP showed how hefty the deductions on his payslip are, despite earning more than a million shillings in gross salary.

The payslip shows that from a gross Salary of about a million a month, Peter Salasya pockets only Sh97,000 every month after deductions.

He told Kenyans;

"Let me demonstrate to Hon Aaron Cheruiyot, deputy prezda Gachagua my great friend CS Murkomen that all Kenyans have shares in this country. I CONTRIBUTE 300K plus to revenue and the president is the only our watchman for our contributions and it's our right to ask for development."

While his take-home pay is not new because many others over time have shared with Kenyan citizens that they do take home very little, it still elicits sharp reactions from Kenyans who always believe legislators are a cash cow.

Kenyans have reacted to his payslip. Here are the comments below:

@kungs_nations a third of the basic or gross pay threshold has been violated, in our sacco you don't qualify for a loan at that situation.

@abuga_makori Peter Salasya's payslip. MPs earn very little. Maybe most of their money comes from deals and mileage allowances.
