Parliament in closed door session

19 October 2011, 17:23

Nairobi - The Daily Nation reports that for the first time in recent history, Kenya’s parliament has gone into a private session to deliberate on the military operation in Somalia, as MPs are briefed on the security situation on the Kenya-Somalia border by Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

The move proposed by Ikolomani Mp Boni Khalwale to hold the session in camera, was unanimously approved by the MPs, when Speaker Kenneth Marende posed the question.

It is common practise for members of the public and the media to be locked out of committee meetings where sensitive matters are discussed but this is the first time that the meetings in the chamber have been held in camera.

According to the Standing Orders- the rules under which the affairs of Parliament are managed, Article 214 says: If at any sitting of the House or in a Committee of the whole House any Member shall move that strangers be ordered to withdraw, the Speaker or the Chairperson shall forthwith put the question, no amendment, adjournment or debate being allowed and upon such question being resolved in the affirmative, all strangers shall be ordered to withdraw from the Chamber.
