"A graft-free Africa will play a great role in the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals," the speaker asserted.

Muturi is also looking to creating networking with the Member of CPA, African Union, Pan African Parliament, Inter-parliamentary Union and his fellow Speakers in African Parliaments to strengthen APNAC as a caucus; and strengthening the APNAC Secretariat by lobbying for allocation of adequate funds by Parliaments for the support of programmes.

The Speaker also assured to work towards availability of adequate funds to undertake APNAC activities.

Origin of APNAC

APNAC started at the Regional Seminar on Parliament and Good Governance held in Kampala, Uganda, in early February 1999.

The Kenyan chapter was started in February 2001 by former Webuye MP Musikari Kombo.
