Revealed! List Of Shame, Silent Mps In Parliament Since 2017

Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi last spoke on the floor of the National Assembly in 2017. Alongside his Nakuru Town West counterpart Samuel Arama, the two legislators have been the most silent of all sitting members of Parliament till date. And whereas Oscar Sudi has been so vocal outside Parliament in defending Deputy President William Ruto, he last uttered a single word while in Parliament way back in 2017. This findings have been revealed by a Parliamentary scorecard released by Mzalendo Trust, a Parliamentary Monitoring Organization in Kenya.


While issuing out these findings, of particular concern to the organization were MPs Sudi and Arama’s failure to take part in vocal deliberations on the floor of the house and for three consecutive years. The organization noted that the consistent failure by the two leaders and for such a long time only serves to undermine the role of the National Assembly as per the provisions on its standing orders and the Kenya Constitution 2010. In yet another shocker, the organization noted that the Legislative output of the 3rd session of the current Parliament hit its lowest points as compared to other previous sessions. 

That a whooping 21 legislators made no contributions on the floor of Parliament in the entire calendar her of 2019. Two out of the 21 were from the Senate, while the other 19 were all from the National Assembly. A majority of them (16) were men legislators, while the other three were female. The not so vocal MPs (men) included Abdi Tepo of Isiolo South, Abdi Shurie of Balambala, Ahmed Gaal of Tarbaj, Johnson Naicca of Mumias West, Amin Deddy of Laikipia East, Geofrey Kingagi of Mbeere South, James Gakuya of Embakasi North, George Aladwa of Makadara, John Owino of Awendo, Oscar Sudi of Kapseret, Stanley Muthama of Lamu West, Gideon Konchella of Kilgoris, Justus Kizito of Shinyalu, Samuel Arama of Nakuru Town West,  Alfred Sambu of Webuye East and James Mukwe of Kabuchai. 

The not so vocal female MPs were Rose Museo of Makueni, Beatrice Kones of Bomet East and Amina Gedow of Mandera. Likewise, the Senate’s not so vocal Senators were Mercy Chebeni and Christine Zawadi (both nominated), Phulip Mpaayei of Kajiado, Halima Abdille who is Nominated and Busia’s Amos Wako.
