Senate leader opposes TA dissolution

24 October 2013, 10:18

Nairobi - Majority Leader of the Senate, Prof Kithure Kindiki, has vowed to oppose Attorney General Githu Muigai’s proposal to dissolve the Transition Authority (TA) in favor of an Intergovernmental Committee.

The lawmaker remained firm that they would “fiercely” fight and reject the proposal.

“I will oppose any move that aims at bringing to end the life of the Transition Authority,” said the Majority Leader.

He further added that the drafters of the constitution anticipated such a body and it would thus be wrong to terminate it.

The AG's preparation of the National Assembly the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill 2013 marshaled unexpected support to the Transition Authority that the Senators felt was under threat by the government.

Former AG and the current Busia Senator Amos Wako had informed the House that the TA had hinted at the possibility of its dissolution the moment the House accepted a debate on the controversial Bill.

Critics perceive the dissolution of the TA as an attempt to undermine devolution that was introduced by the new constitution that was promulgated three years ago.
