The Clerk of the National Assembly has written to all 222 MPs asking them to clear out of Parliament Buildings. The term of the 10th parliament came to an end yesterday and the clerk, Justin Bundi, has asked the outgoing MPs to clear with various departments for inventory purposes.
Bundi wants the MPs to surrender all the equipment and other items issued to them during their term. "Items issued to your office require clearance. This process involves different departments for inventory purposes," reads the letter. Bundi has asked all constituency managers to take care of the offices until after the general election.
The contract signed between the outgoing MPs and the constituency staff, except the office managers, expired yesterday. Bundi asked the managers to confirm to his office that outgoing officers have accounted for the Parliamentary Service Commission property and have vacated the offices.
The Clerk has further asked the managers to ensure there is sufficient security for the constituency office premises and ensure that the offices remain closed during the period of the general election.
The items MPs are required to clear with Parliament are executive desk, back chair, waste paper basket, wooden bookshelf, twp lounge chairs, two low back chairs, stapler, paper punch and a telephone head.
The others are a coat hanger, presidential portrait, printer, a computer, a coffee table, a wardrobe, air fan, two office keys and a chamber swap card.
