President Ian Khama will now earn P518,782 per annum following Parliament’s passing of amendments to clauses providing for remuneration of Members of Parliament (MPs), members of Ntlo ya Dikgosi, Judges and non-unionised members of public service.

On April 9, 2014 acting Minister of President Affairs and Public Administration Shaw Kgathi gazetted the bill to amend the National Assembly (Salaries and Allowances) Act following four percent salary increment for public servants at the end of this month. Before the salary increment, Khama has been earning a monthly salary of about P41,662,76. End of this month he will smile all the way to the bank with about P43,231,88.

The President’s current annual salary is P504,706 more than the annual salary of a government cleaner. An A3 cadre currently earns about P14,076 annually. With the proposed salary increase these cadres will take home an extra P46.95. The vice president Dr Ponatshego Kedikilwe would earn P399,086 annual (about P33,257 per month) while the Speaker of the National Assembly Dr Margaret Nasha and a minister are peaked at P319,289 annually (about P26,607,42 monthly). Kedikilwe’s salary has been increased by P1,279,12 after the four percent increment while that of the minister and Nasha have increased by P1,023,36.
