Kenya's Wealthy President To Take Pay Cut

Oh the irony! If only we thought similar things in Ireland!

Uhuru is the son of Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya’s first president, so they’ve got the family politics thing going in Kenya as well :smiley:
Lot of money in that family; he won’t miss the 20% salary he’s forsaking.

Yes, but wealth wouldn’t stop an Irish gombeen politician from rejecting a pay cut.

My first thoughts upon reading this article was ‘if even the banana republic’s understand you need to cut spending, where does that leave Ireland ?’.

BTW, Kenya’s debt:GDP stands at 46.5% (2012 figure).
