SHOCKING REVELATION IN PARLIAMENT.

It costs the Kenyan taxpayer Sh21 million a year to keep an MP in the House, thus the following revelation may lead you to the ICU, HDU or inside the 'refrigerator'.

Over 200 MPs' names cannot be traced anywhere in the records of lawmakers who have filed serious business in a National Assembly of 349 members for the last 365 days. Parliament records show that they have never filed any Bill nor a Motion in the august House for a full year. 

Only 99 MPs attempted to file Bills in the House. It is worrying to note that there were only 15 private members managed to file Bills in the house. Worse still, only 50 MPs filed Motions in the House for debate on issues that affected their people and to the country. 

This is an indication that majority of our legislatures are passengers riding on the backs of just 150 of their colleagues to do the thinking and the heavy-lifting. Even though majority of them participate in debates, it is a fact that they were all elected to make laws and represent their people in Parliament.

The government has brought 55 Bills through Duale and the Jubilee-led House committees, with the Opposition presenting none.

** Minority Leader Francis Nyenze (Kitui West) leads the Opposition agenda in the House. HE NEITHER HAS A BILL OR MOTION TO HIS NAME.

In the schedule of legislative proposals (the draft Bills before publication), CORD MPs have individually sponsored 76 proposals, of which only seven got published. Jubilee lawmakers have individually sponsored 100 proposals, only eight of which have been published. These legislative proposals are mainly by individual members and will result into what is commonly referred to as “private member” Bills upon publication.

The house committees are said to be very lazy in processing petitions that are brought into the House on various issues. 

~ Opiyo Wandayi (Ugunja), one of most vocal MPs who contributes to Bills and Motions, has neither a Bill nor a Motion to his name.
