Kenya mps bonuses 20121009

Kenyan demonstrators march in Nairobi on October 9, 2012 after lawmakers voted themselves a $110,000 sendoff bonus, with tax hikes expected to pay for it. The proposed lucrative payoff -- at a cost to the country of $24.7 million -- comes after Kenya's parliament dismissed the majority of wage demands of striking public sector workers, including doctors and teachers.
