Uhuru Told To Dissolve The Parliament After Wednesday's Chaos By Marakwet West Ex-MP, David Sudi

Kenyans are still unsure whether MPs will vote in favor of the political parties' coalition bill in a credible manner. Former Marakwet West MP David Sudi, who is also the New Democrats' party leader, stated that the time has come for the Head of State to dissolve the House, claiming that MPs fighting during sessions were untrustworthy.

During a debate on the Political Parties (Amendment) Bill, 2021, a squabble arose between two sides—pro-handshake and United Democratic Alliance (UDA) allies—over proposed modifications to the Bill. During the Wednesday debate, rowdy MPs got into fistfights and yelling confrontations. During the brawls, Sigowet/Soin MP Bernard Koros and National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi were both injured.


Former Assistant Minister and Marakwet West MP from 1997 to 2007, urged the President to take former Chief Justice David Maraga's advice on dissolving the current Parliament into consideration. "It is patently obvious that the current Parliament is rife with corruption." In Eldoret, Sudi urged journalists that the existing Parliament should be dissolved and a snap election conducted.


"Political parties will not agree to regulations requiring them to register coalition agreements with the Registrar of Political Parties months before a general election," he added. He claimed that the bill, which has yet to be passed by Parliament, is causing the country unneeded confusion.
