Moses Wetang'ula and Amason Kingi at Parliament ahead of official opening of 13th Parliament

National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula and his Senate counterpart Amason Kingi at parliament buildings to ensure all is set for tomorrow’s official opening of the 13th Parliament.

The former Senator of Bungoma County Moses Wetangula was elected the Speaker of the National Assembly following a voting exercise conducted inside the Parliament.

He was sworn into office September 8.

President William Ruto is expected to make inaugural address tomorrow.

Wetangula beat Kenneth Marende, who had been filed by Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya to vie for the Speaker contest conducted in the chambers of the National Assembly.

Moses Wetangula is now the eighth Speaker of the National Assembly.

His Senate counterpart and ex Kilifi governor Amason Kingi was elected the Speaker of the Senate after Azmimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance allies boycotted the process over alleged integrity issues surrounding some candidates.

Mr Kingi got 46 out of 66 votes and he is now the third speaker of the Senate after Ekwe Ethuro and Ken Lusaka.
