No flying flags for Cabinet Secretaries, MPs vote

26 March 2014, 13:26 William Korir

Nairobi - Cabinet secretaries will no longer fly national flags on their vehicles after members of parliament voted for they to be denied the right.

MPs unanimously voted to an amendment in the National Flag and emblems amendment bill seeking to have the honour removed from the CSs.

There was also debate over whether governors should be allowed to do so but it was agreed that since they are senior elected officials, they can retain the honour.

Chairperson of the committee on the matter Nairobi women representative Rachel Shebesh presented the question to the floor of the house and it was unanimously voted through by acclamation Wednesday.

Mps argued that CSs are not elected individuals and that if they can parade the flags on their vehicles, then MPs should also be considered.

" If they can fly the flags on their vehicles, then MPs should also be allowed to, Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo said in her submission.

There had earlier been a clamour for most senior officials to be denied the right, with the argument that most who have flags on their vehicles use them for the wrong purposes like overlapping during rush hours.
