Leader of Majority Aden Duale has apologised over the chaotic manner in which MPs conducted themselves during the Thursday special sitting.
He has also admitted on using tricks to ensure that the memorandum by President Uhuru Kenyatta on the Finance Bill, 2018 was passed.
Duale said that the members had a better way of using their democratic right to engage in a healthy debate instead of the unfortunate shouting march.
The lawmakers opposed to the amendments introduced by the president temporarily paralysed the House' business in protest against the tax measures.
Following the events, Duale said that his business in the House was to ensure that the government agenda was complied with.
He admitted that he made sure the two-thirds threshold is not reached by withdraw a number of those who supported the Bill from the chamber.
"The President will sign the Finance Bill tomorrow (Friday) before jetting out to New York," the Garissa Township MP said.
On threats to impeach Speaker Justin Muturi for overruling the dissents, Duale said: "Let them bring it on."
I will objectively shed light under Article 115 of the constitution. Those voting "Nay" have the obligation to confirm that they add to 233 (being 2⁄3 rds). However, under the same provision and article 122, those voting "Yes" just need to be 26 (Simple Majority). ~ 1/3— Hon. Aden Duale (@HonAdenDuale)
In a voice vote, the only legally known and procedural simple process is to rule that the "Yes" have it so that the "Nays" can vote electronically or by way of being counted (call a roll call vote, popular in the US congress) so that their number of 233 is confirmed. ~ 2/3— Hon. Aden Duale (@HonAdenDuale)
Politicians being clever will not agree to do a confirmation vote because:- It produces a physicall list showing who voted; those in "Nays" are not sure they will garner 233. Maneno iko hapo, all the rest ni siasa tupu. ~ 3/3— Hon. Aden Duale (@HonAdenDuale)
