National Super Alliance (NASA) Members of Parliament on Tuesday made good on their threat to boycott the official opening of the 12th Parliament.
As conveyed earlier by NASA co-principal Moses Wetangula, the lawmakers were not present in the House as a protest to what they termed an illegal meeting.
Mr Sambu was elected on an Amani National Congress (ANC) party ticket, which is led by NASA co-principal Musalia Mudavadi, while Gimose is from Moses Wetangula's Ford Kenya.
The Opposition parliamentarians attended a separate meeting held at the Kamukunji Grounds in Kibra where they were addressed by ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
Mr Odinga's communications team had hinted that a major announcement would be made at the rally. The expected pronouncement was called the Kamukunji Declaration.
