Kenya: Senate to Start Debate On Presidential Address

THE Senate will today start debating the speech delivered by President Uhuru during the official opening of the 11th Parliament last Tuesday. Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki will move the motion on the debate on.

The Senate will debate the address for the next three days without interruption with each senator getting 15 minutes to contribute. The members last week approved several motions that will guide House business in future.

Last Wednesday, senators approved the motion on the membership to the Rules and Business Committee which shall set its agenda. They also adopted the motion on the limitation of debate on motions and limitations of debate on adjournment of the Senate. Later that day the House adjourned and did not sit on Thursday to allow members to attend the official opening of the 47 county assemblies.
