SRC Gazettes New Salaries For Teachers With Arrears. New salaries and allowances for teachers, government employees, and other state personnel have been gazetted by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC).
In order for government agencies like TSC and the Public Service Commission (PSC) to execute the raise, the commission has gazetted the new salary.
State and other public officers now receive higher salaries, with arrears retroactive to July 1, 2023. Paystubs for August will reflect the modifications.
SRC Chairperson Lyn Mengich told the media on August 9 that the compensation review applies to both state and public employees with the goal of achieving sustainability.
Mengich claimed that the evaluation took into account the employees who are positioned below the market average in terms of compensation and benefits.
Therefore, Mengich added, “this review seeks to harmonize to the extent of affordability and physical sustainability salary structures that are below the 50th percentile in order to achieve equity and fairness through harmonization.”
According to the commission rating, State officers are at the 45th percentile, state corporations at (89 pc), civil servants of national and county government are below(39pc), teaching services (at 36pc), public universities are (at 49pc) and other public officers at 84 percentile.

The salary increase is reviewed owing to the cost of living adjustments, and legal compliance with a statutory minimum wave among others.
“The average increase is seven to ten percent over a two-year period inclusive of the existing notch increase which averages 3 per cent annually,” she added.
Cabinet Secretaries, for example, will have a salary hike in the review of around 2% to Sh957,000 from Sh924,000.
Due to the fact that President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagia’s remuneration exceeds marketing norms, the panel decided to keep their salaries.
President Ruto had earlier promised to the commission to halt salary hikes for State Department employees, claiming that doing so may deepen the pay gap.
