I just found this on the 'net. Thought it would interest you.
At least 30 assistant government ministers in Kenya have written their president, griping that they have no work to do.Our Politicians could learn a thing or two from the Nigerians.
"I just go to the office and read newspapers," said Abu Ciaba, an assistant fisheries minister.
He and his fellow ministers wrote that "we owe it to the taxpayer that what we are paid is commensurate with what we do."
Kenya spends more than $9 million annually on the salaries and expenses of assistant ministers.
