National Assembly approves 27 Public Accounts Committee members

National Assembly approves 27 Public Accounts Committee membersKenya: The National Assembly has approved 27 members to the Public Accounts Committee which had been dissolved following bribery and extortion allegations.

It took less than 15 minutes for the Majority Leader Aden Duale and Minority Leader Francis Nyenze to rally the lawmakers to back the list of 27, which includes 21 MPs from the previous team. As soon as the party leaders were done, the MPs pleaded with the Speaker Justin Muturi to put the matter to vote.

The new members are Abdikadir Aden (Balambala), Kanini Kega (Kieni), David Bowen (Marakwet East) Timothy Bosire (Kitutu Masaba), Eseli Simiyu (Tongareni), Nicholas Gumbo (Rarieda) Joseph Manje (Kajiado North), Jude Njomo (Kiambu), Joel Onyancha (Bomachoge), Kareke Mbiuki (Maara), Gonzi Rai (Kinango); Jackson Rop (Kipkelion West).

Others are Fathua Mahbub (Mandera), Julius Melly (Tinderet); Mathias Robi (Kuria West), Stephen Manoti (Bobasi), John Mbadi (Suba); Katatha Maweu (Kangundo); Silvance Osele (Kabondo Kasipul); Manson Nyamweya (South Mugirango); Alice Chae (Nyamira); Mwadime Andrew (Mwatate); Jessica Mbalu (Kibwezi East); Charles Geni (North Mugirango).

Duale said the onus was now on the new members to sit down and elect the chairman and vice chairman.

“We want them to rise above party politics and regional politics. We want them to make sure the people of Kenya get value for money in their taxes. They have no choice but to uphold the dignity of this House. Never again in the history of Kenya shall we hear of bribes of Sh5 million, Sh2 million and Sh10, or people recording their party leaders. We hope we will never form another committee to probe PAC members,” said Duale

Nyenze said the new MPs should focus on oversight and avoid shady deals.

“This is a committee where the word corruption should never be heard of, it should above board,” said Nyenze.
