Gitau, MBS, paid a courtesy call to the Vice Chancellor Machakos University on Thursday, the 10th of November,2022. The SRC’s team, which included a monitoring and review technical personnel were warmly welcomed by Ag. Vice Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mwita, together with the Ag. Deputy Vice-Chancellor-Administration, Planning and Finance- Prof. Mugendi K. M’rithaa and the legal officer of the University Ms. Sarah Mumbi Mwihuri.

The aim of courtesy call was to follow up on the commission’s mandate of monitoring and reviewing of salaries and remuneration of public officers of the republic of Kenya. Specifically, the commission was on a mission to extend its shareholder engagement, to communicate and to partner and understand the policy issues or challenges of concern and of interest to the university. Through the commission’s technical team, the purpose of the visit was to check on the university’s level of compliance and adherence as far as SRC’s guidelines are concerned. The Commission sought to clarify and get feedback on its circulars or guidelines the university receives from the Commission concerning salaries and remuneration.  

During the discussions, the Vice Chairperson, Dr Amani Yuda Komora thanked the Vice Chancellor and the University management for the good work at the University. He acknowledged the tremendous growth in the number of students considering that Machakos University is a relatively young University. He advised that performance and productivity should go hand in hand in relation to remuneration. He said there should be transparency and fairness in terms of remuneration and should reflect equal pay to persons with equal value.

On her part, the Commission’s Chief Executive, Madam Anne R. Gitau, MBS pointed out that the government is keen on ensuring that the public wage bill is sustainable and is viable enough to attract and retain the necessary skills. She noted that universities in the country need to align their wage bill to ideal teaching and non-teaching ratios. The CEO lauded those universities that are supplementing Government support by broadening their incomes internally. She commented Machakos University for being up to-date in paying all her statutory deductions and wished that other universities should follow her example.

On behalf of the University, the Ag. Vice Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mwita appreciated and welcomed the SRC to Machakos University. He thanked the commission for the courtesy call to the University. He said the University will learn a lot from the Commission’s technical team as they reviewed compliance of what SRC require. He however lamented that the university is facing challenges of low capitation and CBAs are taking too long to conclude. He expressed optimism that the current move by the SRC to engage its stakeholder around the country will eliminate misunderstanding about the mandate of the commission on salaries and remuneration issues.
