Speaker scolds com­mit­tees for not tabling re­ports

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Kisumu assem­bly speaker Ann Adul has rep­ri­manded com­mit­tees for fail­ing to ta­ble re­ports. She said the MCAs are paid al­lowance and spon­sored for trips yet they have noth­ing to show for it.

“We have lists of re­ports dated back to last year that should be brought to this House and dis­cussed but this has not been done,” Adul said on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon.

She was fu­ri­ous that the House was be­ing ad­journed for lack of busi­ness. Adul said what the MCAs are do­ing is tan­ta­mount to rob­bing the tax­payer.

“There are fam­i­lies that go hun­gry yet they pay taxes, while the MCAs who are sup­posed to be work­ing for them are not se­ri­ous and pocket al­lowance for ev­ery sit­ting,” she said.
