Muturi accused of sidelining Senate

07 March 2014, 14:41 William Korir

Nairobi - National Assembly speaker Justin Muturi has been accused by the senate of sidelining it in the development agenda.

The allegation by various senators will likely revive the supremacy battles between the two houses which has seen words thrown across the divide on a number of occasions.

Senators in a house sitting Thursday, argued that they had been sidelined in the debate of key bills by Muturi and said they would like to be more involved in decision making.

The debate was raised by vocal Mandera senator Billow Kerrow who asked that the red flag be raised on the number of bills passed through the house.

" We have been by passed by parliament on so many fronts including key bills that we can offer good insight into. We need something done about this matter, he said.

He further added that it was their constitutional right to be involved in debate on the country's governance and that the government was breaking the law by denying them bills to debate.

" We are not asking for a favour but our constitutionally protected rights, he added.

Senate speaker Ekwe Ethuro said that he would take the matter up with government and parliament speaker Muturi to explain why the senate is being sidelined.

" It is true that it has been happening and I will seek an explanation from the government on why it is the way it is and the way forward, he said.
