According to House Standing Orders, if a Bill lacks a seconder it stands suspended for six months when it’s supposed to be re-tabled in the Assembly.
Speaking at the County headquarters, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru praised the rejection of the Punguza Mizigo Bill saying it was “detrimental to our people.”
“I want to thank the County Assembly of Kirinyaga for throwing out the Punguza Mizigo initiative motion. This initiative has a very nice title but it is extremely detrimental to our people,” said Waiguru in a press address.
“We have had discussions with the Assembly and many people enlightening them on the importance of ensuring that it does not pass and waiting for the BBI which we think will be taking cognizance of the things we are very concerned about.”
A section of MCAs led by John Bapstist Kanga, however, said that the governor should not celebrate as the Bill can be re- introduced even before the lapse of six months.
