Nairobi MP Speaks for First Time In Parliament

  • The Roysambu Member of Parliament (MP) on Wednesday afternoon made his first ever contribution in the National Assembly since his election, after appearing in a report as one of the most inactive members.

    Isaac Waihenya Ndirangu, broke away from the negative reputation by participating in a motion seeking the decentralization of the registration of National Identity Cards.

    Waihenya and 27 other legislators were unmasked in a report released last week by Mzalendo Trust, which indicated that they had not participated in parliamentary debates for the whole of last year.

    The Nairobi lawmaker could not, however, let the opportunity pass without criticising the Mzalendo report saying that he was a very active member of the house.

    “I am a very active member of the Justice and Legal committee where we sit for three days in a week,”stated Waihenya.

    He further noted that the report was not reflective as a lot that happened behind the scenes were not put into perspective.

    “In the recent past I have signatured several bills including the Gender act, the national Cohesion act, matters to do with the Attorney General, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission EACC and many others,” he added.
