Members of the National Assembly’s week-long induction workshop enters day two with the lawmakers set to be taken through the rules and procedures of the house by a facilitator from the Directorate of Legislative and Procedural Services.

According to the program released by the Office of the Clerk, the exercise which is underway at the Safari Park Hotel will end on Saturday, September 24,  2022.

The event is intended to help the legislators familiarize themselves with their mandate while in office.

Meanwhile, National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula assured the leaders of restoring their privileges after talks with the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC).

“Nobody in their right frame of mind will interfere with your car allowances, mileage reimbursements and with your mortgage and everything else you have been having because that is your entitlement,” Wetangula said.

Speaker Wetangula speaking during the day one session affirmed to the legislators that nothing will change and that if it changes then it will not be substantial.

This follows SRC boss Lyn Mengich’s announcement on the abolishment of allowances as part of new reviews by the commission on benefits of the state officers.

Wetangula further urged the MPs to familiarize themselves with the Constitution as it will be a key guide in House meetings while they contribute to a bill.

“I want to encourage new members, please take the earliest opportunity to learn. Please acquaint yourself with the Constitution of the Republic of Kenya that you have taken an oath to protect reserve and defend it, so that anything we do in the floor of the house is guided by the law,” urged Wetangula.

Mengich is expected to address MPs at the induction retreat.
