Senate approves Azimio’s changes on PSC committee; The Raila Odinga led coalition replaced Senator Dullo with her Nyamira counterpart Okong’o Omogeni as its nominee to the Parliamentary Service Commission( PSC).
The amendment motion was moved to parliament by Steward Madzayo the Minority leader and was unanimously approved by the House.
Madzayo stated,” I move that the motion be amended to delete the name of senator Fatuma Dullo and substitute it with the name of Hon Erick Okong’o Omogeni, senior counsel.”
“ In all the letters that come from the minority, I am the authority. Unfortunately, this was not to be so and another letter was written which led to that appointment (of Dullo).”
While seconding the motion, Kitui senator and Deputy Minority leader , Enoch Wambua stated that Madzayo was the authority for the minority wing and that his letter overruled others.
However, Siaya Senator Oburu Odinga and Sirisia Legislator John Waluke missed out on the PSC seats even after being nominated earlier.
The Parliamentary Service Commission consists of the Speaker of the National Assembly, as the Chairperson, seven Members appointed by Parliament, and a woman and a man appointed by Parliament from persons who are experienced in public affairs but are not legislators.
Jeremiah Nyegenye, the clerk to the senate is the Secretary to the Commission.
