What MPs Have Allegedly Been Doing in WhatsApp Groups Since CDF Was Banned

Policy analyst Arnold Maloba has mocked Members of Parliament, claiming that most of them do not even know why they are in parliament.

The commentator says that it is for this reason that they are fighting for the return of CDF, as this is the only thing they can speak about to their people.

He argues that a number heavily depended on the kitty for relevance, and do not know what else to do now that it is no longer there.

Maloba says that most of the parliamentarians are now making noise in WhatsApp groups because they don't know what else to do.

“When the Supreme Court had made that particular ruling until the AG made a proposal which I feel will be challenged, a lot of them didn’t know what to do next, they now had become motivational speakers and spent a lot of time speaking in WhatsApp groups because they did not know the core function of an MP," he said on Citizen TV on Friday.

He pointed out that a good number of the MCAs do not know that their main role is oversight, legislation and representation.

Those that know their roles in the house, he pointed out, have failed in doing them, hence the obsession with the CDF matter.

"The core function for parliament is representation, then legislation and oversight. What we have in parliament, a lot of them are actually CDF managers because, without it, a lot of them didn’t know what to do next,” he added.

He was bashing Lang'ata MP Felix Odiwuor, who had claimed that mass protests are more effective than parliament.
