    IN SUMMARY

    • According to the study, the monthly salary and allowances of a full professor in Kenya are an average of $2,200 compared with $4,900 in Rwanda, $3,200 in Tanzania and $ 1,150 in Uganda.
    • The researchers also collected evidence on what is paid by six top private universities in Kenya, and concluded that salaries and allowances by public universities are lower than those of other professionals.


    Public universities in Rwanda and Tanzania pay higher salaries to lecturers than those in Kenya and Uganda, according to a study done by a group of experts appointed by a committee of all vice chancellors of public universities in Kenya early last year.


    According to the study, the monthly salary and allowances of a full professor in Kenya are an average of $2,200 compared with $4,900 in Rwanda, $3,200 in Tanzania and $ 1,150 in Uganda.


    The monthly salary and allowances of a full professor in South Africa, the largest economy in sub-Saharan Africa, and the country with the largest number of universities, is estimated at $3,500.


    The study looked at the salaries in 2010.


    The researchers also collected evidence on what is paid by six top private universities in Kenya, and concluded that salaries and allowances by public universities are lower than those of other professionals.

    Comparison
    Citing a 2009 study on salaries in Kenya by audit firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, the report says that the highest paid CEO in the financial services sector earns a salary of Ksh3.9 million ($45,800) per month.


    In Ethiopia a professor earns $864 a month, 23 times the country average. In the US professors are paid an average of $7,358, lower than Canada at $9485. In the UK academics are paid $5,943 on average.


    Professors in Russia and China are nearly the lowest paid in the world, at $617 and $720 respectively per month.

    I'm trying to explain something (the quality of education..) but I can't... what are we paying for? Are we paying for the education that the professors acquired or are we paying for the education they are giving out?

    The title does not chime with the body. When you say that Rwanda, Tanzania pay highest for lecturers you must specify. Do you mean in the world, EAC or Africa?

    pamoja na kwamba siaelewa umuhimu wa hii topic kisiasa..ila tumejitahidi kuhakikisha wasomi wetu hawakimbii nchi za nje kwa kuwalipa chini ya $2000/ month. Sasa tuwape na nguvu zaidi za kiutawala katika ubunifu wa masomo na pesa za utafiti na kuanzisha utamaduni wa kuchukua maoni ya wasomi mara kwa mara katika utekelezaji wa majukumu ya kitaifa. Siyo kumuweka Mkandara pale akitumika kisiasa zaidi.

    As long as we have limited number of Professors, we have to pay them well to teach our children and do our research!! Kama nchi inaliwapa mishahara mikubwa lakini haijui jinsi ya kuwatumia, its not a professor's fault but the government policy.

    It is not amazing therefore to see Professors rushing into politics where they get handsome payments. I'm told most of they do not dedicate their time to their employers. They spend a good chunk of their time working on research projects and on party-time lecturing. Definately, these salaries are just too little for one to make a living on. With these salaries, why should they not be bribed by well-to-do evening students? Hahahaha! I now understand why Prof X of University Y hates students from well-to-do families. Poleni sana Maprof kwani hata hiyo ya Tanzania sioni pesa yakumfanya mtu aishi kulingana na miaka aliyotumia kuupata uprof hapa.

    Wakati tunalinganisha mishahara ya full professors wa nchi hizi, tunatakiwa pia tuangalie uchumi wa nchi hizi pia. Kwa sasa Kenya ndio yenye mkubwa kwa sasa kuliko nchi zingine za EAC, dola moja ya Kimarekani ni sawa na Shs 1570-1600 za Tanzania, Shs. 80 za kenya. Tutafakari hapa kwanza

    Uchumi wa Kenya ni MKUBWA kwenye VITABU... Lakini Kiraslimali ni TANZANIA... up to GDP Ni wazungu tu wanapenda kuishi KENYA sababu ya SHERIA zao FINYU... kwahiyo wanasema UCHUMI wa KENYA
    ni MKUBWA ... KENYA it is only 10% ya ARDHI ndio yenye kuzalisha chakula kila siku njaa... sisi 70%

    Professor = $3,200/month, a mere MP (majority without even a bachelor) = $ 6,250.

    This is a very important question. In fact it applies to every sector in Tanzania.

    I dont think that the researchers did a very good job especially when they include RSA in their survey of salaries. What I know is that some professor in RSA get a gross of as much as R900,000 per anum which is equivalent to more than USD 9,400 per month. You may also like to read this survey: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/02/world/europe/02iht-educlede02.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

    In Botswana the academic salaries have been pegged as follows: Professor - Principal Secretary, Associate Professor-Deputy Principal Secrtary, Senior Lecturer-Director in a Ministry, etc.
