Wetang’ula to rule on ‘Majority’ tussle as National Assembly starts regular sittings

The National Assembly will Tuesday (today) afternoon commence its regular sittings with debate on President William Ruto’s first parliamentary address top of the agenda.

The sitting comes at a time when both the Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition are claiming to have a Majority of the House.

“The House is this afternoon scheduled to commence regular Sittings at 2.30pm. Top of the business for today is the debate on the address by H.E. President Williams Ruto .The lawmakers are also set to consider a number of Procedural Motions.”

Speaker Moses Wetang’ula is expected to rule on the matter before the House embarks on formation of various Committees ahead of Cabinet nominees vetting.

In September, the two rival coalitions named their respective nominees to the majority leadership positions.

President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza coalition unveiled Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa as its nominee for the majority leader’s position to be deputised by Owen Baya (Kilifi North), South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro as Majority whip and Marsabit Woman Representative Naomi Waqo as his deputy.

Azimio on the other hand named Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi as its nominee for the Majority leader’s post deputised by Kathiani MP Robert Mbui.

Suna East MP Junet Mohamed was named as the coalition’s nominee for Chief Whip to be deputised by Nominated MP Sabina Chege.
