MPs banned from foreign trips to pass crucial Bills
20 August 2015, 18:24
Nairobi - MPs have been banned from traveling abroad in the coming week as Parliament looks to pass crucial Bills needed to avoid a constitutional crisis.
Speaker Justin Muturi said Thursday that the move would ensure that for the three days the MPs are needed in the house next week, all Bills are passed.
The move is to ensure an August 27 deadline is not broken for the passing of a number of Bills.
" There will be no trips and I encourage members to concentrate on what matters at the moment and that is squarely to pass these Bills," he said.
" I insist that there will be no approval of travel outside Kenya by any member between now and the time the House will recess on August 27," he insisted.
MPs will go on recess Thursday.
