In the previous financial year, Mwai Kibaki has entitled to a monthly salary of Ksh2.86M Monthly. This translates to yearly pay of Ksh34.43M — about twice the amount president Uhuru Kenyatta receives as an official salary.
Kenya’s third president— Mwai Kibaki is the only surviving retired chief among Kenya’s former presidents. He is perhaps the most paid individual among the serving and retired civil servants in the country.
