MPs to refund Sh2.7 billion illegal house allowances

What you need to know:

  • The decision by the PSC to pay MPs the allowance was made on April 24 2019, and the payments were backdated to October 2018.
  • During the period of 26 months, each MP had cumulatively received Sh6.5 million, and each is now required to return the same to the Exchequer. 

Members of Parliament have failed in their bid to stop recovery of at least Sh2.7 billion they earned as illegal allowances.
