I’ve got some exciting news for all the hardworking teachers, civil servants, and public servants out there. Drumroll, please! It’s time for a well-deserved pay rise in July 2023! President William Ruto himself assured us that the process of calculating this salary increment, ranging from 7% to 10%, is already underway. The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) is taking charge of this crucial task.
Now, here’s the best part. The salary increment will be calculated from the 1st of July, which means the sweet effects of the pay rise will be reflected in your July payslips. Let’s break it down for you, year by year. In the first financial year (2023-2024), teachers will enjoy a delightful 7% salary increment. Not bad, right? But wait, it gets even better. In the second year (2024-2025), brace yourselves for an 8% raise. And the third year (2025-2026) will bring a cheerful 9% increment. Finally, in the last year (2026-2027) of this beautiful salary journey, we’ll be celebrating with a grand 10% raise. Hooray!
Now, let’s get into the nitty-gritty. I present to you the minimum and maximum basic salaries for teachers in different job groups, from B5 to D5.
