Kikuyu Member of Parliament (MP) Kimani Ichung’wa who was de-whipped from Budget and Appropriations Committee recently has been slotted in the Member Services Committee, previously known as the Catering Committee.
The second time Mp welcomed the change.He said,
“…I thank the Majority Leader and Majority Whip for the opportunity to serve in the Member Services Committee, which was previously known as the Catering Committee… these services includes virtual sittings in this age of COVID-19 to help elderly members like Baba of Parliament Jimmy Nuru Angwenyi and Maina Kamanda, to continue serving their constituents… This is also the committee that oversights the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).”
More changes were made in Committees.Hon Otiende Amolo becomes the incoming Chair of the Justice & Legal Affairs Committee as Hon Junet Mohammed, Hon Peter Kaluma and Hon Anthony Oluoch become members of the vital committee.
Ichungwa and 16 other MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto, were axed from the leadership of key House committees, a move by the president that seeks to get control of both the Senate and the National assembly.
