The NGO Council of Kenya has urged members of the Senate to redeem the integrity of the House by debating the coalition party bill before it with sober minds and decorum by avoiding acrimonious sideshows that don’t help the country.
This follows the chaotic scenes witnessed in the National Assembly where MPs exchanged blows in running battles that forced the speaker to adjourn house seating’s twice to restore normalcy. NGO Council chairman Stephen Cheboi said in a press statement that the country’s national image had suffered immensely through the shameless acts by legislators who are supposed to be role models.
“We urge the Senate to debate the bill soberly and with decorum as leaders of respect, what was witnessed in the national assembly earlier in terms of physical confrontation should not be witnessed in the senate. We thank the Senate for the good work they do to advance the interest of counties”, he said.
“We also take this early opportunity to laud the Deputy President for publicly apologizing over remarks made by his supporter Meru senator Mithika Linturi,” He said the DP had shown honest and transparent conduct in admitting mistakes and resolving to correct them for the good of the country.
“As NGO Council and our NGO/CSOs members across the country we remain committed to championing for a peaceful nation and Good Governance in the country,” he said.
