SHOWDOWN - RAILA’s men vs UHURU/ RUTO’s as the RAILA/ KALONZO Retirement MONEY comes up

Thursday, the 18th of July 2013 - Speaker of the National Assembly, Justin Muturi, has ordered the chair of Parliament’s Committee on Finance, Benjamin Langat, to table a Bill proposing hefty retirement benefits for former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, and ex-Vice President, Kalonzo Musyoka, by next week.

The speaker ordered Langat to table the Bill by Thursday next week after a complaint by Suba Member of Parliament, John Mbadi, who accused Langat’s team of delaying debate on the Bill;

“This Bill is very important, because this great Kenyans are not enjoying any benefits from the State and therefore Mr Speaker I would have liked to get a clarification why the committee has not lived to the spirit of the Standing Order and I would also like to know the position of the Bill,” posed the CORD MP.

Mbadi is the author of the Bill.

Ordering Langat to table the Bill, Muturi said that the time for its tabling has been set in stone and should not be delayed;

“The Standing Order 143 (b) is very clear that you should deal with it and return it back to the Speaker within 14 days, that provision is not open-ended, it is time bound,” said the Speaker.

Langat said he and his team would give a way forward on the Bill by Thursday;

“We (the committee) have already discussed the same and we agreed that there was some consultation we were supposed to make with the Leader of Majority so that we look for a way forward but I can promise my friend that by next Thursday we will have given our comments as directed by the Speaker,” he said.

The Bill is likely to trigger a showdown between MPs for the CORD alliance and the ruling Jubilee Coalition who say they will not support the Bill until Raila quits politics all together.

Leader of the Majority Coalition in the National Assembly, Aden Duale, has recently said that Raila and Kalonzo are not entitled to retirement benefits because the two CORD principals have not retired from politics as envisioned by the Bill.
