Highest-Paying Parastatals in Kenya and Salary Scales

Here is a list of the highest-paying parastatals in Kenya and the salary scales that are used to remunerate their employees.

Parastatals are state corporations or public corporations that are completely controlled by the government. The government has full control if it owns more than 95% of the total share capital.

The parastatals have a lot of money as a result; some pay less and others pay more. The word “less” is used figuratively and does not refer to any other jobs. In Kenya, parastatals typically offer some of the highest salaries.
