Moses Wetangula, speaker of the National Assembly, has received appreciation from Musalia Mudavadi, the leader of the Amani National Congress party and candidate for prime cabinet secretary. Moses Wetangula is credited with deciding which political party holds the majority in the assembly.
Wetangula determined that the Kenya Kwanza Alliance (KKA) is the majority, despite the claims of both the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance and the Kenya Kwanza Alliance that they have the necessary number of representatives in the house. He added that he could not force the 14 MPs who wrote to him associating themselves with KKA to remain in Azimio.
The confusion and tension that resulted in the chamber caused Wetangula to suspend the meeting early and postpone it until Tuesday of the following week.
On his Twitter page, Mudavadi commended Wetangula for the admirable work he had done in urging MPs to cooperate peacefully.
Mudavadi also expressed his congratulations to the Majority Whip Silvanus Osoro and his deputy Naomi Waqo, as well as the Majority Leader Kimani Ichung'wah and his deputy Owen Baya. He pleaded with them to keep helping the Kenyan people.
"Thanks for your strong and persuasive decision in the National Assembly today, Speaker @HonWetangula. As they handle our national affairs, I ask our members of parliament to display caution "As Mudavadi said.
