Nairobi - A performance audit report has revealed how the MPs performed since they were elected to Parliament in the March 4 polls.
The report that was compiled by Mzalendo, a public watchdog, revealed that 100 MPs have spoken less than 10 times in Parliament, The Standard reports.
Parliaments’ Majority Leader, Aden Duale, topped the list as the busiest legislator.
The report which only focuses on the MPs contribution in the House further reveals that 15 Mps have only spoken once.
The revelation comes a few days after Duale criticized his colleagues for failing to table enough Bills in Parliament.
He said the first session of the House, that ended last week, had only 10 Bills published adding that the number of Bills was low compared to the current number of MPs, who now have the responsibility of enacting laws.
