Our MPs are greedy hyenas! See what they did to KDF soldiers were who are killed in SomaliaEditor's Choice 09:40
Thursday October 13, 2016 - CORD and Jubilee MPs rejected a proposal by Homa Bay Town MP, Peter Kaluma, on Wednesday to pay Sh 20 million to families of Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers disabled or killed in action.
The MPs also rejected a proposal by the same MP to waive all fees or tuition charges in all public institutions of learning up to college level for children of KDF staff.
In his ruling, after Parliament rejected, National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi, said the extent of financial implications of the proposed changes had not been determined and that the House had not made any legislative provisions to meet the consequent budgetary allocation.
This means the family of KDF soldiers who have been killed in Somalia will have to wait longer to receive compensation from the Government for loved ones who suffer death or any form of disability while on duty.
