The Speaker of the National Assembly, Justine Muturi, has been forced to adjourn a special session due to controversy over the allocation of funds from the constituency fund. The meeting was called to approve the budget in addition to the previous attempt to recognize MPs who had boycotted the meeting, demanding their CDF money.

Efforts by the majority leader Amos Kimunya and the budget committee chairman Kanini Kega to promise them that CDF funds will be provided by the finance ministry were in vain as lawmakers insisted that in-depth talks should be held and their CDF funds released.

The lawmakers forced the speaker to adjourn the session at least temporarily, saying there was a need for dialogue to find a solution. They said the finance ministry had neglected to provide CDF funding while seeking funding to carry out other government responsibilities. In that additional budget, CDF has been allocated 23 billion, among which, 13 billion is a balance from the previous financial year while 10 billion for this financial year.
