National Assembly majority leader Aden Duale scolded his Senate counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen for saying the Health Laws (Amendment) Bill was passed without following proper procedures.
President Uhuru Kenyatta signed the bill into law on Monday in the presence of leaders including Mr Murkomen, the Senator of Elgeyo Marakwet County.
Via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, however, Mr Murkomen claimed the Senate was not involved so the process was done in unprocedural manner.
Regarding his presence at State House during the signing, Mr Murkomen claimed he had been invited to witness the assenting of the Assumption of the Office of County Governor Bill.
He said he realised too late that Mr Duale was also present “on behalf of the National Assembly to witness the signing of some Health Laws (Amendment) Bill”.
Mr Murkomen accused Mr Duale of misleading the President into approving a bill that he insisted had not gone through the Senate.
