Members of Parliament must refund Sh1.2 Billion taxpayers money they unlawfully awarded themselves in 2018 as housing allowance.
The judges stated that the MPs' petition against High Court ruling did not meet the threshold, and thus they should refund the money.
The parliament had requested the Court of Appeal to temporarily suspend the High Court order, and if the application would have been granted, the MPs would have continue drawing the high perks.
High Court had earlier ruled that the SRC acted within its mandate by directing the clerks of the parliament not to pay the allowance which did not interfere with the independence of the parliament and PSC.
