Outrage against lawmakers' perks in Kenya
A hefty retirement bonus, approved by lawmakers for lawmakers, sparked an outrage in Kenya.
Parliamentarians voted to give themselves bonuses despite the president's veto of their attempt at another payoff in October.
The retirement package included $110,000 each, diplomatic passports for them and their spouses, and a state funeral currently reserved for presidents and major achievers.
An average Kenyan makes about $1,800 annually, and would have to work for more than 60 years to earn the bonus amount.
And again, just like in October, the president rejected the latest attempt.
