Number of MPs should be reduced to 225, Nyachae says

30 December 2015, 08:26 William Korir

Nairobi - The number of MPs should be reduced to 225 from the current 349, the Constitutional Implementation Commision CIC has said in its final report.

The CIC dies a natural death today after MPs failed to extend its term and in its final report, the CIC says that Kenyans do not need the current batch of MPs as they add no value.

" Considering that we have the county assemblies and the sharing of functions between the two levels of government, the large number of members of the National Assembly is not justifiable, nor is it prudent use of resources,” the CIC said.

" Similarly, the minimum gender balance threshold in the Senate has only been met through nominations. This has unreasonably increased the number of MPs without the increase necessarily benefiting the people," it added.

The report was released in Nairobi Tuesday evening.

CIC also proposes that Kenyans amend Article 89(8) to provide that the number of Wards be taken 750, down from the current 1,450 to reduce the number of Members of County Assemblies and the wage bill too. Currently there are 2,526 MCA's.

The proposal will add weight to that of Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria who wants the number of Governors reduced from 47 to 16 among other proposals.
