The Independent Commission for the Remuneration of Public Officer Bearers of the Republic of South Africa paid the Council of Governors a courtesy visit during their bench-marking trip to Kenya. The delegation which comprised of Mr. A.L. Pheto – Commissioner, Mr P.M. Makapan- Head of Commission Secretariat. Ms M Mashaba- Remuneration specialist and Ms. MJ Ramagaga- Deputy Chairperson and head of delegation. The team was especially interested in learning the comparison of the current salary structure with other relevant and appropriate salary structures as well as profile and grading of position within the organizational hierarchy and updating of records.
The delegation was interested in understanding the role of the CoG in the devolution space and how the CoG links with the forty-seven (47) County Governments. Rosemary Njaramba, Ag. Director legal affairs at COG in her presentation reiterated that “the CoG has cemented its position as a custodian of devolution by ensuring that the interests of County Governments are protected and that the functions of County Governments are respected.” Furthermore, CoG has been vocal on matters of division of revenue between the two levels of government; human resource management; policy and legislation on devolved functions; and functional assignment, among others.
The Kenyan System of Governance framework was heavily borrowed from the South African devolution system thus the benchmarking trip by the independent commissioners is a clear indication that although only five years into Devolution, Kenya is indeed on the right track.
The team of four also visited the Ministry of Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs, Public Service Commission, Salaries and remuneration commission, Judicial Service Commision, Parliamentary Service
