The names of Kenyan Senators and lawmakers who contributed nothing in Parliament in 2020 have been listed.
A report titled 2020 Parliamentary Scorecard noted that the number of silent MPs and Senators has risen by ten and two, respectively, compared to 2020.
The report was produced by Mzalendo Trust, a non-partisan entity that keeps an eye on Kenyan Parliament to facilitate public participation in Parliamentary processes.
In the National Assembly, 31 MPs did not contribute anything, while there were four senators in Senate.
Oscar Sudi (Kapseret), Gideon Konchella (Kilgoris), Fred Ouda (Kisumu Central), Richard Onyonka (Kitutu Chache South), Mathias Robi (Kuria West), Marwa Kitayama (Kuria East), Bady Twalib (Jomvu), George Aladwa (Makadara), Abdi Shurie (Mbalambala), Maalim Kulow (Banissa), Patrick Ntwiga Chuka/Igambang’ombe), Said Haribae (Galole), Charles Gimose (Hamisi) and Maina Kamanda (Nominated) are among the silent members in the National Assembly.
Others are Jane Chebaibai (Elgeyo Marakwet), Jane Njiru (Embu), Anab Gure (Garissa), Irene Kasalu (Kitui), Rose Mumo (Makueni), Amina Gedow (Mandera), Asha Mohammed (Mombasa), Lilian Tomitom (West Pokot), Janet Teyiaa (Kajiado), Ernest Kivai (Vihiga), Alfred Sambu (Webuye East), Imran Okoth (Kibra), George Kariuki (Ndia), Joshua Aduma Owuor (Nyakach), Sylvanus Osoro (South Mugirango), Lokiru Ali Mohamed (Turkana East).
In the Senate, only Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, Philip Mpaayei (Kajiado), and nominated senator Victor Prengei failed to make contributions.
What is shocking is that many who appeared on the list are incredibly vocal outside the Houses.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
