Legislators left the Pride Inn hotel proceedings on Monday in protest of the National Government Constituencies Development Fund (NG-CDFdelayed )’s delivery, putting an end to a week-long parliamentary retreat in Mombasa.
The lawmakers questioned the delay in the money, claiming that since schools resumed on Monday, thousands of parents who depend on the program to keep their kids in school were left in the dark.
The MPs who insisted on meeting with Treasury CS Njuguna Ndungu proposed that the money used to pay for their retreat be transferred to the CDF.
Before the week-long indoctrination could start, the lawmakers demanded the monies be released, led by Yatta MP Basil Ngui.
Beginning on Monday, January 23, members of Parliament were supposed to take part in a week-long orientation program in Mombasa.
In order to fulfill their mandate as outlined by the Standing Orders, they were to be appointed to the position of committees.
The purpose of the event was to give participants the chance to learn about the National Assembly’s Committee structure and the functions of each Committee’s members.
