Kenya: Curtain Falls On 10th Parliament

THE 10th Parliament yesterday ended its session after enacting the most laws since the country's independence. The Parliament has passed more than 180 bills since it was sworn-in in 2008. The Parliament was to officially end its calendar by next week Monday. It is now waiting for the official dissolution by the President.

Already some of the MPs have started campaigning for various seats. By end of Monday, the MPs will not be allowed to transact any business within Parliament. They will not be allowed to address press conferences. The immunity that the MPs enjoyed during their tenure in the House will also end.
