Kenya MPs object to salary oversight

Legislators seek end of commission tasked with cutting their salaries, but Kenyans disagree with demand.

    Parliamentarians in Kenya are due to debate a petition that calls for the break-up of a commission that was formed to cut their salaries.

    Politicians say the commission is illegal and want their income to be reinstated. 

    Many Kenyans, however, are against the demands.
