Jubilee Majority Leader and Kipipiri Constituency Member of Parliament Amos Kimunya has opened up on the reason why they have been rushing to pass the Political Parties Bill that is being supported heavily by legislators allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga.
While speaking on Wednesday night in an interview that was hosted by Citizen Television presenter Wahiga Mwaura, Amos Kimunya has revealed that the development of this bill began after the 2017 elections.
According to Kimunya, if the pass doesn't get approved before January, it will pushed to another year. This is because a good number of parliamentarians will start their campaigns and there will be no one to debate them at the National Assembly.
"It was now becoming a point that you can not continue consulting on a bill since from 2017 is now 2021 it was as of last month. If this bill does not get approved by parliament before February it will be of no use for this electoral cycle then it might as well be introduced in 2022 or 2023," said Jubilee Majority Leader Amos Kimunya.
