Starehe Member of parliament Charles Njagua, popularly known as Jaguar, has said he will not join the pay cut crusade as challenged by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday.

Taking a pay cut, he says, is giving his money to bureaucrats and he would rather give it directly to his constituents through providing water tanks and food for the poor.

“I represent Starehe. Everything I do as an MP is for the benefit of my constituents. I will not do things for PR like giving my salary to bureaucrats. I will give it directly to the people who elected me. I have bought water tanks & food for the poor. I will do more,” tweeted Jaguar.

President Uhuru Kenyatta announced that he and the deputy president William Ruto have taken a 80 percent pay cut in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Also, all Cabinet Secretaries and Chief Administrative secretaries took a 30 percent pay cut while Public Secretaries will earn 20 percent less.

These were some of the measures the government undertook to cushion the economy from the vagaries of Covid-19.

Speakers of the two Houses of Parliament also announced that they would also take a 30 percent pay cut for the next three months.

Adisa, the pain in our hearts cannot even be measured and you have left with a piece of our hearts,’’ Adisa’s parents, Mr Philemon and Grace Lugaliki of Ndalu, eulogised their fourth born child.

Her 11-year-old son Kyle said “She was my everything, my best friend, my world. Everyday I would smile when she smiled. She would always say that she loved me and I said it back. But this was the worst day ever. I love you mum. You will remain in my heart.”

And her  11-year-old daughter Kyla described her mum as “Beautiful, funny, delightful and basically the life of the party kind of person. I hope I have been the best daughter and made you proud mommy. I really wish I could have heard your voice one more time. Fly High Mom.”

PROFOUND MESSAGE

Her best friend, Carol also had a profound message, for the deceased doctor.

“We knew the drill upon the death of either of us… The one who would go first would ensure a number of things; you were to wear a beautiful white gown, rest at Lee Funeral Home, and have your make up excellently done. We were to be in no hurry to bury you. We were to take at least 10 days before we laid you to rest. We were to mourn you the Maragoli style complete with isukuti… to dance to reggae and preferably get some nice mix from DJ Mo. That is how you were to exit. Not like this. I am sorry Ady,” Carol said in her message.
