Business Daily (Kenya) - - TOP NEWS -

Par­lia­ment re­sumes busi­ness af­ter a four-week re­cess at a time the coun­try is grap­pling with in­crease in fuel, trans­port and food prices. This fol­lows en­act­ment of the Fi­nance Bill 2018 that was passed in a chaotic sit­ting char­ac­terised by claims of ir­reg­u­lar vot­ing, jostling and name calling. Top on the agenda will be dis­cus­sions around the Bud­get Re­view and Out­look Pa­per (BROP), which the Trea­sury is ex­pected to ta­ble on the floor of the House be­fore Oc­to­ber 21.

Eyes will also be on the ver­dict by the Na­tional As­sem­bly Pow­ers and Priv­i­leges Com­mit­tee chaired by Speaker Justin Mu­turi that has been in­ves­ti­gat­ing bribery al­le­ga­tions in Par­lia­ment dur­ing con­sid­er­a­tion of the con­tra­band sugar re­port.
