MPs hold special sitting today to adopt changes to CDF law to access Sh10 billion
MPs will today pass a key legislation aimed at affirming their grip on the National Government Constituency Development Fund.
Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi, in a gazette notice, has recalled lawmakers for a special sitting today, to discuss among other matters, enactment of the National Government Constituency Development Fund Bill.
The Bill sailed through a second reading early this month and awaits presidential assent.
Lawmakers had introduced and adopted an amendment to the Bill to circumvent the recent court ruling denying constituencies Sh10 billion in CDF money. The High Court ordered Treasury CS to release not more than Sh25 billion to constituencies for the 2016-17 financial year, locking MPs out of Sh10 billion, now in arrears.
