Kepsa pushes for peaceful polls in a meet with MPs
The Kenya Private Sector Alliance will be pushing for business-friendly laws and a peaceful 2017 general elections, as industry captains meet legislators in Mombasa today.
Kepsa has partnered with the National Assembly to host the 16th Speaker’s Roundtable Forum themed “securing Kenya’s competitiveness through an enabling legislative framework”.
The two-day forum will focus on improving Kenya’s competitiveness and her preparedness ahead of the next year’s elections.
“The focus on election preparedness will highlight the critical role of the National Assembly in securing peaceful elections and safeguarding Kenya’s economic momentum,” Kepsa said in a statement.
The move is part of Kepsa’s efforts to abate losses incurred by the business community during electioneering periods as a result of violence, as witnessed in 200708.
“Our focus has been on proposing recommendations on amendments that enhance reforms in Kenya’s business environment,” Kepsa chairman Dennis Awori said.
