The 12th Parliament was officially opened yesterday, with President Uhuru Kenyatta set to address a joint sitting of the National Assembly and the Senate.

The constitution requires the President to address the opening of each newly elected Parliament.

However, Nasa MPs skipped the occasion, saying the Supreme Court's nullification of Uhuru's re-election undermined his authority.

Jubilee Party, which won most seats in the National Assembly and the Senate, is once again comfortably set to control the 12th Parliament.
