Functions and Responsibilities of Elected State Officers

In the period 2008- 2012, Kenyan taxpayers paid Members of Parliament Ksh 851,000 per month and the President Ksh 2.4M per month. In the same period, Kenya’s per capita income has been Ksh 2,000 per month, while minimum wage remained Ksh 4,050 per month. This means the President earned over 595 times than the average citizen, while MPs in the 10th Parliament earned over 425 times more than the per capita income and 210 times more than the minimum wage paid to the many workers in the agriculture, plantations and allied sector whose sweat is the backbone of Kenya’s economy. What exactly should to elected state officers be doing to earn this money and are they actually offering Kenyans their money’s worth?
