National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi on Wednesday reminded the House, especially the new members that they should stand still wherever they are and remain quiet whenever the Speaker is on his feet.

The new members of the House are yet to be fully trained on the conduct of House business. The planned training is scheduled for September 17- 22.

He also told the members that they will be required to pronounce their names and the areas they represent on the floor of the House before they are allowed to contribute in the House.


According to the Speaker, the move is necessary for Hansard recording of the House proceedings as the members wait the processing of their biometric details.

Consequently, the Speaker has directed the clerk of the House, Mr Michael Sialai to take the members’ details and issue them with the logging cards for the time being.

“Any member who wants to contribute will be required to catch the Speaker’s eye by standing and pronouncing their names and the constituencies they represent,” Mr Muturi ruled before the House begun transacting its business after the presidential address yesterday.
