List of new PAC members set to be tabled in parliament

22 April 2015, 08:22 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – The National Assembly is expected to approve a list of MPs nominated to reconstitute the disgruntled Public Accounts Committee (PAC).  

Parliament's Majority Leader and chair of the Committee on Selection, Aden Duale confirmed that he had received the Jubilee and CORD coalitions’ nominated MPs to reconstitute PAC and that the list will be tabled on the floor of the House for debate where it will be adopted or rejected.

Duale said both CORD and Jubilee coalitions reached a consensus to retain PAC members who were not adversely mentioned in the Powers and Privileges Committee report on alleged corruption, for institutional memory.

PAC’s 27-member reconstitution is in response to the Powers and Privileges Committee recommendations chaired by Kuresoi MP, Moses Cheboi whose team probed corruption allegations against the then PAC chair, Ababu Namwamba and other committee members.

The Cheboi-led committee had recommended five former PAC members including Namwamba, his vice chair Cecily Mabrire (Runyenjes MP) be barred from the affairs  of any House committee including the reconstituted PAC for abusing accorded parliamentary privileges and code of conduct.

Nominated CORD legislators to PAC include Eseli Simiyu (Tongaren), Nicholas Gumbo (Rarieda), Abdikadir Mohamed (Balambala) and Timothy Bosire (Kitutu Masaba) while those from Jubilee coalition are Kanini Kega (Kieni) and Kangogo Bowen (Marakwet East).

Funyula MP, Paul Otuoma was tipped to replace the axed Namwamba but his name was dropped in unclear circumstances thus leaving Eseli in good position of chairing the accounting committee although Suba MP who is also ODM Chairman, John Mbadi had shown interest in heading PAC.
