List of shame: MPs who never speak in parliament named

15 February 2015, 16:05 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A list of MPs who have yet to generate or contribute to any debate in parliament has been named.

Is your MP on the list?

Parliamentary watchdog the Mzalendo Trust Sunday released a report that named the MPs who did not contribute to house proceedings in any way in 2014.

The list of 13 reads; Steven Kariuki (Mathare), Abdullahi Banticha (Isiolo South), Alexander Kosgey (Emgwen), Benjamin Andayi (Khwisero), Benson Mbai (Masinga), Charles Gimose (Hamisi), Chris Bichage (Nyaribari Chache).

Lemanken Aramat (Narok East), Maweu Katatha (Kangundo), Sammy Koech of Konoin, Janet Teiyaa (Nominated), Aisha Katana (Kilifi Women rep) and Mary Keraa (Kisii women rep) are also on the list.

Teiyaa, Katana and Keraa are yet to give their maiden speeches.

The list also named the best performing members, with ODM chairman John Mbadi coming out tops and nominated MP Amina Abdalla on the ladies side.

In the Senate, CORD co principal Moses Wetangula was on top of the list while nominated Senator Beatrice Elachi came tops on the female side.

There has however been a marked increase in the average number of times MPs and Senators contribute in the respective houses.

Over half the MPs gave between 20 and 100 contributions, while in the senate, over half gave 100 or more contributions.

" Parliamentarians are custodians of peoples’ sovereign power. It therefore follows they should be open to scrutiny and accountable to the country for their time in the House," The Trust said in its statement.
