MPs threaten to halt debate on supplementary budget 


Lawmakers have threatened to reject the supplementary budget over a delay by Treasury to disburse Ksh 4.9 billion towards the National Government Constituency Development Fund.

The MPs further threatened to shoot down any government business before the floor of the House until the remaining part of the Ksh 41.7 billion allocated to the constituencies for the current financial year is factored in the supplementary budget.

The chairman of the Constituency Development Fund Wafula Wamunyinyi had questioned the delay by treasury in disbursing the balance of Ksh 4.9 billion of the constituency development fund allocation accusing the government of prioritizing its development projects at the expense of CDF.

In retaliation, the MPs threatened to paralyze debate on the Ksh 126 billion supplementary budget.

Others threatened to derail government business on the floor of the house.

Meanwhile, the National Assembly began vetting Elizabeth Wangui Muchuri’s appointment as a member of Salaries and Remuneration Commission to represent the National Police Service Commission.

The name will now be forwarded to the President for official appointment.
