#1
These are the software developer / engineer salaries in Kenya: (Those competent in popular multipurpose programming languages like C, C++, Objective C, C#, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, Delphi, PHP, Go etc

Entry-level
100,000Ksh - 250,000Ksh

Middle-level (2yrs+ experience)
200,000Ksh - 300,000Ksh

Senior
300,000Ksh & above

Note that these Kenyan salaries are still far way below international software developer salaries and any competent talented software developer will be more compensated and appreciated if they do remote jobs.

NV thanks for enlightening the village and any aspiring software developer to know their worth; how much they should be paid.

Si kama kwa mwindi anataka usome ukuwe knowledgeable na anakulipa 26k
Ati muindi? Organisations zinalipa peanuts apa nje. I quit my second job after kuona nachezwa. Safe to say, I don't code anymore

If you have a bongo la biz, coding is a waste of time.
I find it cheaper and better to pay for coding and I can focus on the business side of things
That's what i did, i use my connections to land clients, pay some software engineers to work on it and pay them well. Besides, i went into real estate and i like it

One thing employees fail to learn is that it is not some organisation, employers etc to determine their payscale. it is them to determine how much they are going to be paid. You are giving employers too much power.

You were being paid peanuts because they knew there were people like you willing to work for that pay.
