No MP Will Be Going To Qatar For World Cup

Samuel Njoroge, the clerk of the National Assembly, told the Saturday Nation that despite the government's austerity measures, his office has not yet received a request to authorize a budget for such a trip.

According to a schedule recently provided by Treasury Cabinet Secretary Njuguna Ndung'u, all remaining funds for training, motor vehicle and furniture purchases, international travel, and other expenses as of September 30, 2022, have been drastically reduced.

According to Mr. Njoroge, "My office has not received any request from any National Assembly member or staff person to travel to Qatar."

His comments were made in response to Suba South MP Caroli Omondi's announcement that he will be traveling to Qatar with National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetang'ula to witness the month-long games.

"Speaker Wetang'ula and I will be traveling for the World Cup", Mr. Caroli informed his supporters.

He is a member of the committee's 15-member sports and culture subcommittee. Webuye West MP Dan Wanyama serves as the committee's chair.

If Parliament decides to spend millions of shillings to transport the MPs to the Gulf, it could incite rage among regular Kenyans, thus committee members remained circumspect on the subject.

The Russian World Cup in 2018 was sponsored by the Parliament for roughly 20 MPs.
