Fate of key Bills unknown as Parliament fails to extend CIC tenure

22 December 2015, 14:49

Nairobi - The fate of 28 constitutional bills remains unknown as the National assembly failed to extend the tenure of the Commission for the Implementation of the Constitution (CIC).

Some of the pending Bills include the Two-Third Gender Principle Bill, Access to information Bill, Representation of Marginalised Groups Bill, Minimum and Maximum Land Holding Acreage Bill and The Investigation and Historical Land Injustices Bill.

With the CIC term expiring on Thursday next week, the country risks losing the Bills whose passage requires input from the Commission.

MPs moved the deadline to pass the Bills to August next year, Daily Nation reports.

In October, CIC officials rejected bid by Senate to extend their term in office following wrangles between the Commission and legislators.

Senate had insisted that the Supreme law has not been fully implemented, and recommended that the National Assembly extend the CIC term by two years.

MPs have however gone on recess before discussing whether or not to extend the CIC tenure, putting both the CIC and the pending Bills in jeopardy.
