Senate is a bunch of idlers, says MP

09 June 2015, 14:20 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - A member of national assembly has hit out at the Senate terming it a ‘bunch of idlers’ who have nothing to do.

Kuresoi north Member of Parliament, Moses Cheboi said the Senate as a House has no meaningful work they can do for this nation and asked them to stop attacking the national assembly for doing its job well.

Speaking in Kuresoi town Monday, Cheboi said that Parliament will not be cowered by threats from idlers who get paid for doing nothing.

“Parliament is a strong institution which does its work as per the constitution and the noise coming from some idlers will not stop us from executing our mandate. Senate has nothing to do and that is why they have realized that the only thing they can do is to attack Parliament for doing its work,” said Cheboi.

The MP called on Senators to carefully read the constitution and understand what they should be doing as elected leaders.

“Our Senators seem not to understand what their roles are and they should read the constitution to find out what they should be doing,” he said.

A bitter war of words erupted between the Senate and the national assembly after members of parliament slashed budgetary allocations for the Senate, Judiciary and the Salaries and Remunerations Commission.
