Parliamentary Service Commission Members Approved

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Kenya's National Assembly has approved the nomination of seven Members of the National Assembly and Senators nominated to serve on the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).

Leader of Majority Kimani Ichungwa moved the motion for approval of the nominees under provisions of Article 127(2) of the Constitution.

The Members who got the nod of the House to serve as Commissioners of the PSC include;
Faith Wairimu Gitau, Mohamed Ali, Senators Nderitu Kinywa, and Joyce Korir.

Others are Mishi Juma Khamisi Mboko, Patrick Makau, and Fatuma Adan Dullow.

Ichungwa reminded the new Commissioners that they have an enormous responsibility to ensure that both Houses of Parliament are facilitated to discharge their mandate effectively.

"I have confidence that you will deliver on your mandate, and therefore I urge you to serve all Members diligently devoid of political parties affiliation," said Ichungwa.

He reiterated the need for them to adhere to the law as they undertook their duties as he informed the House that Parliamentary Service Commission would be oversighted like any other Constitutional Commission.

Deputy Leader of Minority Mbui Robert, while seconding the motion, told the Commissioners that their work has been cut out and should move with speed to address issues affecting the National Assembly and the Senate that await them once they assume office.

He noted that the nominees were equal to the task, just like all the Members in the House, and asked them to serve with utmost dedication and commitment.

Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula chairs the Parliamentary Service Commission, while Senate Clerk Jeremiah Nyegenye serves as the Secretary.

The Parliamentary Service Commission of Kenya is one of the Independent Commissions in Kenya established under Article 127 of the Constitution to ensure the smooth functioning of the Houses of Parliament, that is Senate of Kenya and the National Assembly of Kenya.
