The Salaries and Remuneration Commission yesterday shook the country with the new salary structure for senior state officials whereby they got an increase that has left most people jaw dropped.

Amidst the antigovernmental protests that are fighting the high taxes in the country, most citizens are left with the conclusion that priorities are not being met.

Such hefty increases in salaries have caused a lot of mixed reactions many claiming that the politicians care what gets into their pockets.

Here's what netizens had to say:

ellian_beverlyne Yoohh I was thinking 🌚 what if, like, all of us decide in 2027 not to vote for anyone and give all that money to the citizens 🥺 because right now, what are these... Imagine there's a boda boda rider out there making less than 150 a day with all that hard work, and then there's someone whose job is just to sit and talk, eating millions by the end of the month 😪💔
