The National Assembly on Tuesday afternoon convened a special plenary session intended to debate the joint Justice and Legal Affairs Committee Report on the Constitution of Kenya Amendment Bill (2020).
On the day's business paper was also communication from His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta on approval of the nominee for the post of Chief Justice.
" I have today 28th of April 2021 which also happens to be my birthday received a message from the president of the Republic of Kenya with letters, affidavits, and curricula vitae belonging to one Martha Koome for approval as Chief Justice", said Speaker Justin Muturi.
Barely was he done than the legislators broke out in song wishing him Happy Birthday in C-note and cracking well-fed voices.
Also, the appointment of Professor Fatuma N. Chege as a TSC Commissioner in the Ministry of Education was cordially passed even when Ugenya MP David Ochieng tried to raise aspersions on her CV which was yet to be uploaded on the Parliamentary website portal.
Generally, the explosive mood expected to precede the BBI Report debate has not been evident as the legislators seem to agree on most issues.
