Babu Owino’s Warning to Joho, Oparanya Over ODM; Government Moves to Tax Non-Salaried Kenyans & How Much Mobilizers Who Bring Kenyans to Heckle Certain Politicians Are Paid

Good morning,

Speaker Moses Wetang’ula is poised to deliver a verdict on the constitutionality of the National Government Administration Laws (Amendment) Bill (National Assembly Bill No. 73 of 2023) today, Wednesday, March 20, 2024.

This bill, currently at its Second reading stage, seeks to introduce two significant positions within the government: the Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) and the Chief of Staff.

However, concerns have been raised by the Leader of Minority, Opiyo Wandayi, regarding the legality of the proposed roles outlined in the bill.

Wandayi has voiced apprehensions that if the bill is passed in its current form, it could potentially trigger legal challenges similar to past instances where the High Court ruled the position of CAS as unlawful.

Wandayi has argued that the duties designated for both the CAS and the Chief of Staff under the bill are in violation of the Constitution.

In light of these concerns, he has strongly advocated for Parliament to refrain from advancing the bill in its present state.

Meanwhile, here are news stories making headlines on Opera News today;
