The government program has undoubtedly attracted numerous youths in Kenya, and it goes, therefore, without saying that the Kazi Mtaani payment package could be attractive.
In its first phase, the enlisted workers were paid a daily wage of Kenyan shillings 653.10 for Nairobi, Kisumu, and Mombasa. In contrast, those from the other municipalities were paid Kenyan shillings 600.00.
However, the Kazi Mtaani salary was lowered slightly in phase two to increase the recruitment bracket to 270,000. Each enlisted worker receives payment of shillings of 455.00 per day.
The Kazi Mtaani initiative continues to empower youths in all parts of the country. Since its launch, it has attracted the interest of numerous young people.
The initiative provides employment opportunities for these energetic youths and keeps them away from criminal activities.
Currently, enlisted workers from Nairobi, Kisumu, and Mombasa earn a daily wage of Kshs. 653.10 while workers from all other municipalities earn a daily wage of Kshs. 600.00 per day.
The wages are guided by the Wage Order of 2018. Payments are made once a week through mobile money transfer.
