Top 7 most active & inactive MPs & Senators

A glimpse into the most active and inactive MPs and Senators in the legislative arena

Senator Samson Cherargei, MPs Beatrice Elachi and Ronald Karauri

As of August 9, a full year had transpired since the legislators were elected into their respective offices, offering an opportunity to examine their performance over the course of 11 months.

During this period, the Mzalendo Trust compiled and released data highlighting the engagement levels of both Members of Parliament and Senators, shedding light on their activity in the legislative process.

Notably, on average, each member of the National Assembly participated in discussions ten times.

However, it's intriguing to observe that a substantial portion, precisely 187 members of the National Assembly, contributed less than ten times, accounting for 68.14% of the total.

On an average scale, a Senator actively engaged in discussions approximately 41 times over this period.

Impressively, the majority of Senators demonstrated a robust commitment to their responsibilities, with all but one Senator contributing to plenary discussions more than 10 times.

In fact, a significant proportion of Senators participated extensively, making noteworthy contributions of 50 times or more.

This substantial involvement reflects their dedication to legislative duties and the democratic process.

Responding via her Facebook page, Senator Hezena offered a perspective that actions often carry more weight than mere words.

In her statement, she urged readers to dismiss the significance of such rankings, emphasizing that they are essentially determined by who speaks the loudest.

She acknowledged the uniqueness of each Senator's approach, emphasizing that not all can adopt the same vocal approach.

Hezena stressed her preference for thoughtful contributions, choosing to speak when the situation truly demands it.
