Former Attorney General Githu Muigai has proposed the number of constituencies to be reduced saying Parliament has too many leaders. 

Speaking on Thursday while appearing before the National Dialogue Committee, Githu also said the number should be scaled down as they force the government to make excessive expenditures.

“We have too many people in Parliament, we have too many constituencies and counties. They are costing us a lot of money. Reduce the constituencies to about 100 and have one man and one woman in each,”said Githu. 

The eminent lawyer went on to say that the two-thirds gender rule should be abandoned in favour of a 50/50 representation in government.

“There is a feeling amongst Kenyans that we have not done enough to justify this. We need more civic education on empowering women…empowering a community,” Githu stated.

“We need to abolish the Woman Rep seat, we create two positions in the constituency. We will achieve 50 percent, and it will be cheaper,” he said.

His proposal has been backed up by Azimio la Umoja Spokesperson Makau Mutua who added that the Senate should be abolished, counties amalgamated and the number of MCAs reduced. 

“Prof Githu Muigai is right, Kenyans are over-represented and overburdened by their representatives.  Let’s abolish the Senate, shrink the National Assembly to under 200, amalgamate counties, and drastically cut the number of MCAs,” said Mutua.

The proposal comes at a time when the 10-member dialogue committee is deliberating issues affecting Kenyans and the opposition to solve the longstanding political tiff between Azimio and Kenya Kwanza.
