Representatives of the East African Legislative Assembly, including Winnie Odinga and Kennedy Musyoka, were chosen by Parliament on Thursday, November 17. (EALA).
These two, together with former Kieni MP Kanini Kega and Mombasa businessman Suleiman Shahbal, were elected as MPs on Azimio la Umoja tickets.
Hassan Omar, Mwangi Maina, Iman Falhada, Ziporah Kering, and David Sankok made up the Kenya Kwanza side, which is led by President William Ruto.
Members of the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) will be eligible for generous compensation packages, similar to those enjoyed by senators and members of Kenya’s National Assembly.
Monthly gross pay of Ksh1.4 million plus allowances is due to the members of parliament.
They make significantly more than the Ksh1 million that Kenyan mps get in gross pay.
Given their duties of legislation, supervision, and representation, the pay, and benefits are competitive.
Like the other EALA legislators, Kalonzo’s son and Winnie will be eligible to receive a brand-new car from the government.
In the course of their duties, they will also travel to the nations that make up the EALA. They will get additional compensation to make traveling among the member nations easier.
Members of EALA are indirectly chosen by national assemblies, with each member serving a five-year term.
