Wednesday September 18 2019

The Punguza Mizigo Bill proposes to amend the Constitution.

The proposed law, which is sponsored by the Thirdway Alliance party, aims to make changes, including reducing Parliament’s annual budget from Sh36.8 billion to Sh5 billion, reducing the number of Members of Parliament from 416 to 147 and introducing a seven-year one-term presidency.

At least 24 County Assemblies should approve the Bill for it to move to the National Assembly and the Senate for approval. If the majority of the MPs in the Houses support it, it will be presented to the President for assent.
