As public officers, the duo is entitled to an official government car of 3000cc and an annual airtime allowance of Ksh240,000.
Given the high stakes of their responsibility, the guards assigned to the two are determined by the Inspector General of Police, Hillary Mutyambai.
On his departure next year, the IEBC boss – who was appointed in 2017 – will receive pension benefits as prescribed by SRC.
“A state official, in office or appointed for a fixed term of office, will receive a service gratuity of 31 percent of the annual pensionable salary for the term of office,” SRC stated in part.
