A section of Kenyans are bashing president Uhuru Kenyatta for confusing Salaries and Renumeration Commission (SRC) and the commission of Revenue Allocation. Earlier today the president Uhuru Kenyatta said that he supports equity and fairness and that the formula did not come from him but the SRC.
It is not that the president does not know the difference but it was a confusion between the two independent commissions. However Narok senator Ledama Ole Kina has joined netizens and blasted the president for not knowing the difference.
The Narok senator claimed if the president does not know the difference there is really a big problem. He said,“Did Uhuru say the formula is from SRC? Enyewe kuna shida.” The formula has created a stalemate between those who are for population oriented formula against those advocating for marginalized areas.
The standoff has seen three Senators spend time in police custody something that was strongly refuted by interior cabinet secretary that their arrest had nothing to do with that formula. But president Uhuru Kenyatta denying having any involvement, the question many are asking is who had ordered the arrest of the three Senators.
