Maina Kageni is no doubt the highest paid journalist and radio presenter in Kenya. His salary, which we are about to reveal, is almost twice the salary of the Kenyan President.
While he lives a flashy life, Maina is now reportedly earning more than Uhuru Kenyatta. President Uhuru Kenyatta earns Ksh 1,750,000 per month, according to Salaries and Re-numeration Commission. This salary is similar to what Maina earns.
Initially, Maina used to earn Ksh1.2M-Ksh 1.5M, which he thought was too little compared to what he brings to the company.
When he threatened the Radio Africa management, his salary was reviewed and he is now earning Ksh 1.5M-Ksh 2.1M.This salary is, however, subjected to taxation. After the 30 % tax, he pockets more than Ksh 1 million.
