What they lack in capability they make up for in Chutzpah

“MP’s poised to pocket [$100,000] in send off pay.” Sounds like a made up headline for a snarky blog, but The Citizen reported last week the members of parliament recently approved a golden handshake of $98,000 on completion of their terms. And that is after an annual salary of $90,000 plus $35,000 a year in allowances.

As one person on Twitter put it:

Where do I apply for this job

The average person’s in Tanzany? Glad you asked — $1,600 per year according to the CIA World Factbook.

Now, of course, the government is now trying to claim ignorance of how this happened. No one is buying it.

I can’t really say I’m surprised. But the shamelessness still takes your breath away.
