Parliament turning into dictatorial House, says Senetor

08 June 2015, 14:45 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - The national assembly is slowing turning into a dictatorial house, Nakuru senator James Mungai has said.

Mungai said that going by the recent events in parliament, it is clear that parliament has adopted dictatorship as a means of punishing those perceived as its opponents or critics.

Speaking in Nakuru town Sunday, Mungai said that by slashing the budget allocations for the salaries and remuneration commission, senate and judicatory, the MPs clearly indicated that they were afraid of other independent constitutional bodies.

“Parliament has decided to misuse its powers and punish other institutions by slashing their budgets. The Kenyan parliament is turning out to be worse dictator than Moi,” said Mungai.

“Kenyans must rethink all the powers they gave the national assembly and slash some of them,’ he added.

Mungai said that it was wrong for parliament to punish the Judiciary and SRC for simply doing their job, and called on parliament to respect other constitutional bodies if they want to be respected.
