a parliamentary session. MPs passing of the bill to allow those who loose in the next general elections to be nominated to the senate and parliament borders on selfish interests

Parliament is on course to amending a key component of the constitution, to allow presidential and deputy presidential candidates who lose in the elections to find their way back into parliament. Garsen MP Danson Mungatana, who is the proponent of the amendment has intimated that the amendment seeks to strengthen the opposition in parliament….well, is this a matter of self political interest?

It is so sad that the constitutions which Kenyans overwhelmingly voted for seems to be only serving the political class. The same parliament has been very slow in implementing some of the crucial bills in parliament and the urgency ans pace with which they want to pass this bill send a very signal to Kenyans.

Our Kenyan politicians should stop being selfish and ensure that crucial clauses in the constitutions are not changed for their benefits.
