Employees in the least six ministries are now in their second month of going to work without salaries. The latest Salary Delay Announcement indicates that the treasury is yet to release funds for pending remuneration.

Escalating cash crisis continues to wreak havoc in households and workplaces. A case in point is the Ministry of Education which decries not receiving dues for both March and April

Stalled service delivery and lack of motivation are among the effects of delayed salary to employees in Kenya.

Meanwhile, the government has vowed against borrowing for the sake of recurrent expenditure.

As a result, is a heated standoff between civil servants and the Kenya Kwanza government headed by President Ruto and Deputy Rigathi Gachagua.

The majority of workers who received their monthly dues at the end of February are now in despair about the next pay date.

TSC and the Ministry of Heath are demanding a cumulative Ksh. 10.5 billion. Tabulated below are outstanding March debts in various ministries

MinistryPending Bill
EducationKsh. 8 billion
HealthKsh. 2.5 billion
EnergyKsh. 306 million
Public ServiceKsh845 million
Regional developmentKsh213 million
Treasury (KRA)Ksh1.7 billion

In addition, County governments are yet to receive billions in capitation from the national government.

Some of the 12 counties where health workers have already downed their tools include Kisii, Kisumu, Nyamira, Murang’a, Mombasa, Nyeri, Laikipia, Bomet, Vihiga Taita Taveta, and Embu.

Addressing Mombasa residents, DP Rigathi Gachagua insisted that the government will not borrow for the sake of salaries.

“It’s true we have had slight disbursement challenges. We have decided that we are not going to borrow money to pay salaries because it is not prudent and unsustainable. We are going to rely on our revenues. Soon the counties will receive their allocations.”

DP Rigathi Gachagua.

The situation continues to worsen by the day and may soon result in an economic standstill.

The latest salary delay announcement by DP Rigathi Gachagua is heartbreaking for thousands of employees stuck without capitation. Experts advise that Kenyans should expect further income delays because the government is broke.
