National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has finally revealed that Garissa Township MP, Aden Duale was the the person behind his decision to reconvene Parliament after a chaotic session on Tuesday.
Muturi, who had earlier adjourned the session to January 24,2017, stated that a meeting with the National Assembly Majority Leader had prompted the late night change of mind.
“Duale came to my office after we adjourned and we tried to reason together. I remember well because I told him that he was to blame for the whole fiasco because when he rose on the floor, he veered off to discuss CORD leader Raila Odinga to the chagrin of his loyalists in the house,” Muturi was quoted by the Standard.
According to the Speaker, Mr Duale had the powers to request for a Special Sitting as the leader of Majority in the August House.
“He apologised and requested that we convene a special sitting next. Under the law, House leader can request for special sitting an as a Speaker I cannot object,” the Speaker said.
