Supreme Court gives 14-day ultimatum to Speakers Muturi & Ken Lusaka

Orders issued

Supreme Court judges

The Supreme Court has given Speakers of the National Assembly and Senate 14 days to utilise the legislative process in finding a solution to the division of revenue stalemate.

During the Wednesday ruling, the apex court ordered Parliament to pursue further mediation and report back in 14 days.

On Monday, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi failed to show up at a meeting by the Law Society of Kenya seeking to mediate between the Senate and the National Assembly over the Division of Revenue row.

LSK had offered to lead the dialogue between the two Houses, for them to reach an out of court settlement, as advised by Chief Justice David Maraga.

Governors protest

CoG Chairperson Wycliffe Oparanya and other county chiefs staged a march to the Supreme Court where they filed a petition two weeks ago.

Governors had criticized the National Assembly over what Kisumu County boss Prof Anyang Nyong'o termed as being inconsiderate.

Nyong’o said county government operations including water, agriculture, environment, health and road development have all stalled over lack of funding for the 2019/20 financial year.

He stated that the Division of Revenue Bill should be passed as a matter of urgency to pull out counties from the quagmire.
