Nairobi - Daily Nation reports that the Senate on Wednesday morning weighed in on the supremacy battle between it and the National Assembly with a call to the members of the Lower House to “stop being childish”.
The Deputy Speaker Kembi Gitura, the Leader of Majority Party Kindiki Kithure and the Leader of Minority Party Moses Wetang’ula were unanimous that the National Assembly erred in “belittling” the Senate’s role in scrutinising the Division of Revenue Bill.
On Tuesday, the members of the National Assembly said the Senate ought not scrutinise the Bill, with Gitura noting that they have a right to consider it and even reject it.
