What you need to know:

  •  The report encourages reward for effort, but discourages double payment.
  • The BBI pushes for the reduction of the wage bill, which will see cuts in personal emoluments to ensure that at least 30 percent of national and county budgets are dedicated to development.

Civil servants will lose sitting allowances, ministries will be compelled to divulge the salaries for all employees and the wage bill will be slashed to fund development projects.
