Senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka has directed that the tabling of the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020 be deferred.

The Bill had been slotted in the order paper for introduction in the House for first reading on Thursday afternoon, March 4.

This followed the Speaker’s directive on Wednesday, March 3, that the Bill be introduced in the form which the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission sent it to the county assemblies.

“After consultation with our the Legal Affairs Committee and that of the National Assembly. I wish to differ Order No. 8. I will give more information at a later date,” Speaker Lusaka said.
