NEWS:ODM’s ABABU NAMWAMBA elected to head the Public Accounts Committee (PAC)

Tuesday, the 21st of May 2013 - News just in indicates the Budalang’i Member of Parliament, Ababu Namwamba, has today been elected to chair the important Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
Namwamba, an outspoken ally of CORD leader Raila Odinga, got 16 votes against the 10 votes cast in favour of Nyatike MP Edick Anyanga.

 The fact that Namwamba now gets to lead the crucial oversight committee is an indicator that the Jubilee alliance is willing to cede some of its power in the house even though some CORD MPs have called it a week gesture designed to hide the control that it still wields.

In related news, Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau has been elected to chair the Energy Committee while Ayub Savula will head the Agriculture Committee.

Meanwhile, David Were will chair the Labour Committee while Maina Kamanda will head the Transport Committee.

William Cheptumo meanwhile was elected unopposed to head the Committee on Delegated Legislation.
