MPs Proceed on a Long Recess as Speaker Muturi Announces When They Will be Back to The Parliament

The Members of National Assembly have proceeded to two months recess, where they will be expected to attend to matters concerning their constituencies and also celebrate this year's Christmas Day and the New Year.

The recess comes amid unfinished business despite President Uhuru Kenyatta during his State of the Nation Address urged the MPs to ensure crucial bills are debated and passed before the break.

Some of those Uhuru advocated for are the Political Parties amendment bill, political parties membership bill 2021 and the Proceeds of Crime and anti-Money laundering amendment bill 2021.

The Speaker Justin Muturi however told the lawmakers that they might be recalled anytime during the break that will end in late January next year in order to consider important issues.

The MPs will be expected to resume the 6th session on the 25th of January, 2022.

This comes at a time when the two houses; the National Assembly and the Senate have dozens of pending bills, which now poses a risk that some of them might be lost in the transition towards next year's general elections.
