Anglo-leasing debate fails to take off in parliement

30 April 2014, 19:15 William Korir

Nairobi - The parliamentary debate on whether the government should be allowed to make a KES 1.4 Billion payment in the Anglo-Leasing scandal failed to take off Wednesday.

The debate was more heated than ever following the increased pressure from a number of sectors imploring the government not to make the payment.

And with Jubilee MPs walking out of a meeting earlier in the day in which the government tried to plead for their support in the house, the debate failed to kick off.

This followed a decision by Budget and Appropriations Committee Chairman Mutava Musyimi who requested the Speaker Justin Muturi to grant him time to review the case at hand.

There was obvious criticism from some MPs over his decision to stop the debate but Muturi agreed with the request.

" The request will be granted because he is the one who started the debate in the first place and he has valid reasons for asking so, Muturi said.

The government has been under pressure from the opposition not to make the payments and with the Law Society of Kenya promising to sue the government if it makes the payment, only a parliamentary decree will hand the government power to make the payment.
