MPs to get hefty salary and sitting allowance increases

Minister Mthuli Ncube


Members of Parliament are going to have a substantial salary increase with effect from 1 July 2022, Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube said on Thursday.

Legislators will also be put on a contributory medical insurance scheme and their sitting allowance will also be increased.

Ncube disclosed the development after Norton MP, Temba Mliswa (Independent), complained that legislators’ earnings have been severely eroded by inflation.

Mliswa also revealed that MPs were this week locked out of hotels because the Government had not settled their bills.
