The outbreak of Covid-19 in the country since March last year have enabled netizens to adopt the use of technology in running their daily activities.
Kenyan parliament have not been left behind in convening online meetings after the suspension of parliamentary sittings due to the surge in new cases last month.
A report by the Standard gives credit to Kirinyaga Senator Charles Kibiru who serves as the chairperson of the Senate's Budget Committee, and who despite being admitted in hospital managed to chair two virtual meetings.
On Friday, the calm legislator during a one hour virtual sitting while lying on an hospital bed called out on the Treasury's Chief Administrative Secretary Nelson Gaichuhie over delayed allocations to the county governments thus derailing development.
Some of the members who followed the session never knew of his state until he turned the camera revealing that indeed he was on an hospital bed.
This came a day after chairing another virtual sitting on Wednesday in the same state although he did not disclose that he was admitted to the hospital and at some time excused himself handing the session to Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot.
