Salaries of Senior Government Officials in Kenya


Kenyan Government officials are among the highest paid civil servants in the world; they even earn more than some of the most developed countries like Britain, UK and Japan.

Though the Salaries and Renumeration Commission was formed to harmonize salaries for civil servants, there is still a huge gap between the top government officials and the average civil servant.

For instance, President Uhuru Kenyatta draws a monthly salary of Sh 1,750,000 followed by Deputy President William Ruto who earns Sh 1,487,500

The following is a detailed list of what top government officials earn per month:
