Only 112 of the 416 MPs will sit in the National Assembly chamber for the address by visiting Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu.

Speaker Justin Muturi said the seats have been reserved for 24 Senators and 88 members of the National Assembly on a first-come-first-served basis.

MPs were further directed to remove their vehicles from the parking yard near the Senate entrance to pave way for Suluhu’s reception.

“You shall be informed of the seating arrangements. Since Wednesday is not a scheduled day for a sitting, the House will adjourn as soon as the President finishes her speech,” Muturi said.

Suluhu arrived in the country for a two-day tour on Tuesday to a grand reception by her host President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Suluhu arrived at State House, Nairobi shortly after 12 noon and was received by her host President Uhuru Kenyatta.

After the national anthem of both countries and the EAC anthem, Suluhu was accorded the 21-gun salute before inspecting a guard of honour paraded outside the State House.

Uhuru introduced Suluhu to the Cabinet Secretaries before embarking on private talks between the two heads of state.
