Soy MP Caleb Kositany has written a letter to National Assembly speaker Justin Muturi in which he states that he would like to introduce a bill which will amend the constitution to abolish the senate.

The legislator also wants positions of Nominated MPs in National and County assemblies to be abolished. According to Kositany, the country loses in excess of Ksh 3 billion annually which constitutes a heavy burden on the tax payer.

‘The objective of the bill is to reduce the overall cost of representation of the public, reduce the public wage bill and to promote the prudent use of public funds.’  Reads part of the letter.

The bill comes at a time when there’s a public uproar over the soaring cost of living with Kenyans feeling betrayed by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s move to impose an 8% tax on Petroleum products.

While addressing the nation last week, President Kenyatta revealed that while the 2010 constitution brought with it enjoyment of new rights for Kenyans, the rights are also very expensive.

Kenyans are still waiting to see how Speaker Muturi will respond to the letter.
