Nairobi - Backbench MPs on Thursday frustrated debate on the KES 58 billion Supplementary Budget Estimates after disagreeing with Finance minister Njeru Githae on the appropriate allocation for the establishment of county governments.
According to Daily Nation, the MPs made history by frustrating debate on the motion protected by Parliament’s Standing Orders, which state that deliberations on a motion of that nature cannot be stopped or interrupted.
The morning session lasted hardly an hour, with the MPs leading a walk-out that forced an adjournment of proceedings and therefore suspending debate on the estimates.
