"That is Hot Air" UDM MP Causes Laughter in Parliament as he Dismisses a Document Tabled by Junet

The debate on which political formation commands the majority in the National Assembly was the only discussion of the house on Tuesday during its first sitting since official opening by President William Ruto.

The MPs from the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance, and those from the Kenya Kwanza Alliance maintained that they have the numbers, with some of the members giving their submission in defence of their camps.

The Azimio wing said that based on the agreement in custody of the Registrar of Political parties, they are the majority, with Suna East member of parliament tabling a document to Speaker Moses Wetangula's desk terming 'a confirmation' from the clerk of the house, and which was acquired from ORPP that Azimio is the majority.

Dismissing any association with Azimio, Mandera North MP Abdullahi Bashir Sheikh termed Junet's document as 'hot air,' saying that the Standing Orders directs the clerk to acquire a certified copy of the coalition agreement and not a letter.

The United Democratic Movement, UDM deputy party leader echoed Wetangula who had said that the document submitted to him had blank pages.

"Why is the Azimio agreement not in public? The speaker has confirmed that indeed the document has blank pages, and that is what was presented to Azimio parties in KICC in March. As UDM we do not want to be associated with Azimio. What Junet has presented there is hot air, and so as UDM we are in KKA."
