In Summary
  • Borabu MP Momanyi dismissed arguments fronted by other Nasa MPs that the PSC slot was reserved for ODM.

The Nasa Parliamentary leadership has now written to the Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi requesting for more time to settle a row over nominees to the powerful Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).

National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi has asked the Speaker to give the coalition until Monday to resolve the impasse that has threatened to break the opposition.

The letter comes just a day after MPs drawn from three Nasa affiliate parties told the Kalonzo Musyoka led Wiper Party to quit the coalition if they cannot back down on their demand to have a slot in the PSC.

The MPs who were drawn from ODM, Amani National Congress (ANC) and Ford Kenya protested the move by Wiper to write to the Speaker demanding for a slot in the PSC.

“I have written to the Speaker to give us until Monday to solve the impasse. Any name to the commission, whether of Ford Kenya, ANC, ODM or Wiper can only come from the office of the minority and the occupant of that office is me,” Mr Mbadi said.
