Mumias East MP Peter Salasya shares payslip online, sparks social media uproar


Mumias East MP Peter Salasya has become a topic of discussion on social media after he shared his payslip online.

The payslip shows that despite earning over a million shillings in gross salary, Salasya only pockets Sh97,000 every month after hefty deductions.

Many Kenyans expressed disbelief and some were sympathetic.

However, others pointed out that MPs have other sources of income besides their monthly salary, including deals and mileage allowances.

Salasya defended his contribution to revenue, stating that he contributes over 300K and the president is the watchman for their contributions.

It is their right to ask for development.

The reactions to Salasya’s pay are not new since many Kenyans believe legislators are a cash cow.

One Twitter user pointed out that a third of the gross pay threshold has been violated, which means Salasya wouldn’t qualify for a loan from their sacco.

Another Twitter user asked how a mortgage contribution of Sh563K would be possible with a net salary of only Sh97K.
