National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi is expected to gazette special sittings of the National Assembly on April 8 to consider economic stimulus interventions that President Uhuru Kenyatta announced last week in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

This follows a petition from National Assembly Leader of Majority Aden Duale who has listed a number of urgent matters that he wants the House to consider in implementing the President’s directive.

According to Mr Duale, the legislators are expected to consider all the stages of the Tax Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2020 containing part of the legislative measures to address taxation regime due to the Covid-19 disease in the country.

The MPs will also consider any other legislative measures to cushion the country from the effects of the pandemic.

The consideration of persons nominated for the appointment to various constituency committees of the National Government-Constitue
ncy Development Fund (NG-CDF) Board and the approval of appointment of persons to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) are also on the in-tray for the legislators.

“Pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 29, I wish to request you to call for special sittings of the House on Wednesday, April 8, 2020,” Mr Duale says of the special sittings to take place in the National Assembly’s debating chamber from 10am.
