The National Assembly’s Departmental Committee on Administration and Internal Security earlier today engaged with three lawmakers regarding their proposed legislations.
First to appear before the Committee, Nakuru West MP, Hon. Samuel Arama said that the Chiefs’ (Amendment) Bill, 2024 seeks to create a provision for the transfer of Chiefs and Assistant Chiefs.
Hon. Arama explained that some chiefs are recruited at a very young age, and staying in one area can hinder their service delivery.
β€œIt is monotonous and tedious doing the same thing in the same place”, added Hon. Arama.
The Committee sought to know the applicability of the legislative proposal, since according to them, for institutional memory, chiefs are recruited in their respective areas because they can relate with the locals and can easily communicate in their native language.
In response, Hon. Arama noted that as a pilot program, the transfers could commence effect in urban areas which are cosmopolitan.
β€œWe could have some of those posted in their local areas transferred to urban areas. I have seen it work in Nairobi County, which means it is a concept that can be implemented”, said Hon Arama.
The Committee also considered the Births and Deaths Registration (Amendment) Bill, 2024, a legislative proposal sponsored by Gilgil MP, Hon. Martha Wangari. The proposed Bill seeks to ensure that the Cabinet Secretary establishes at least one Births and Deaths registration office in each constituency.
While presenting her proposal before the Committee, Hon. Wangari pointed out that birth and death certificates are very crucial documents yet many people struggle to get them.
β€œHaving officers especially in the rural areas in charge of registration of the birth and death certificate, will guarantee a seamless process”, Hon Wangari observed.
On his part, Hon. Nolfason Barongo’s (Bomachoge Borabu) sought the Committee’s nod on his Anti-Bribery (Amendment) Bill, 2024 which seeks to provide for measures for the National Police Service, through establishment of designated traffic zones with equipment and standards of uniform to enforce traffic rules.
In his explanation, Hon. Barongo said that inclusion of cctv cameras in all roads, introduction of pocketless uniforms to the police officers and having a multi-agency command center would help curb the bribery menace.
The sessional chair, Hon. Dido Rasso (Saku, MP) assured the sponsors that the Committee would look into the proposals and propose amendments where necessary.
