National Assembly wants Parliamentary Commission allocated more funds

The National Assembly is  proposing that the Parliamentary Service Commission be  allocated  more funds  in the 2020/2021 national budget to enhance service delivery in the august house.

The proposal is contained in the Finance bill, which is in its second reading.

Among other proposals, the bill seeks to amend the section of the law relating  to insurance to specify the period within which an appeal against the commissioner of insurance by an aggrieved party can be filed at the tribunal.

The bill further proposes to amend KRA Act no 2 of 1995 to include commissions earned by Kenya Revenue Authority on collections made on behalf of government agencies capped at 2 percent of the revenue collected.

It also seeks to amend the Act by providing for specific timelines within which the authority can be sued to enable the authority effectively manage disputes.

During the morning session, the National Assembly questioned what members said was alleged use of brutal force by security officers  in enforcing government directives during the Covid-19 pandemic.
