MPs refuse to go on recess
Posted on Tuesday, September 01, 2009 @ 18:20:43 CDT by kwpnews


NAIROBI (Catherine Achieng'a) - The backbenchers in parliament Tuesday put up a spirited effort and stopped the house from adjourning for six week.

The move was ignited by Garsen MP Danson Mungatana who claimed there were matters still pending in the House that needed to be urgently dispensed off before MPs go on recess.

Mungatana said there was no hurry in going for a holiday yet issues like the reappointment of Justice Aron Ringera as Kenya Anti Corruption Commission director that needed to be discussed.

Chief Whip Jakoyo Midiwo's attempt to have the House extend its seating until all 13 motions that were slated for debate including the motion of adjournment discussed were quashed by the backbenchers who claimed they would not agree to be used as rubber stamps to the machinations of the executive.

And to prove their displeasure the backbenchers forced Justice Minister Mutula Kilonzo to eat humble pie and have a motion that sought to have parliament endorse three names forwarded by the Chief Justice to the political parties tribunal referred to the departmental committee on administration of Justice.

The MPs claimed it would be unfair for the House to tear into the credibility, integrity and character of the three in the eyes of the public, saying that would end up traumatizing the individuals.

The Chief Justice through Kilonzo wanted parliament to endorse the names of Sankala Ole Kentai, Chacha Odera and Jessie Mutura as members of the political parties dispute tribunal.

The Tribunal would be tasked with handling political parties disputes and instill party discipline.

The motion was later amended to have the committee scrutinize the three names before parliament can debate their appointment.
