NEWS: MUTURI tells SEREM and NYACHAE not to threaten Parliament... over SALARY

Wednesday, the 29th of May 2013 - The Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has told Sarah Serem and Charles Nyachae the heads of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission and the Commission for the Implementation of the Constitution respectively that they should not make any threats against Parliament.
Speaking in Turkey where he is attending a conference, the Speaker defended the action by MPs yesterday to revoke a legal notice issued by the SRC;
“The SRC derives its mandate from the Constitution, but the method that it shall then follow when doing its job is in the SRC Act. She (SRC chairman Sarah Serem) is supposed to bring her proposals to Parliament. Read section 26(2) of the SRC Act,” said the speaker.
Muturi also said that the SRC and CIC would have nowhere to go once Parliament has its say;
“They should tread carefully. They should not threaten Parliament. Are they out of their minds? Parliament will take action and we’ll see where they will go,” he said.
Deputy Leader of Minority Party, Jakoyo Midiwo, and PSC member Jimmy Angwenyi yesterday asked the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) to process the MPs pay  with immediate effect but Muturi said the PSC will sit down to examine the matter;
“I am seized of this matter,” said Mr Muturi.
