Drama spiked in the senate as senators agreed and disagreed over the new proposed revenue sharing formula by CRK.It was the fiffth sitting with four other sittings postponed due to failure of agreeing on the right sharing formula.The debate was already heated from the previous sitting and senators were just singing even before and when the speaker came in.Senate majority whip Irungu Kang’ata,Murang’a senator, was dealt a huge blow as senators opposed his proposal.
Kang’ata proposed that the implementation be given more time so that a solution is reached.The proposed amendments were supported by Siaya senator James Orengo who said that the matter needs more time up to 2023 not 2022 as it was previously supposed to.A majority section of senators opposed led by Kipchumba Murkomen who wanted the matter be discussed and finalised.
The sentiments by Murkomen were supported by other 24 senators who opposed  while 22 supported and there were no absentees as the speaker gave out the results. The results spike much reaction developing from the previous sitting where Makueni senator Mutual Kilonzo junior was dissatisfied by the speakers act of postponing important sittings when debate is heated.
The chants of shame heckled the house as the speaker left the chamber and today they strongly opposed a time extension for the implementation. The speaker had a rough time that some senators had to be sent out of the chamber for misbehaving.Rising on a point of order, a senator noted some senators not seating at their positions in what was referred to as consulting.
Nakuru senator Susan Kihika with others had moved form their positions and the senator said that they had gone against the rules by the ministry of health that requires social distance.He said that the closeness threatened the health conditions in the house and with disagreements, the speaker sent out some senators.
Nairobi senator Johnstone Sakaja came with his proposal that he thought was better and got backed up by senator Mutual Kilonzo Junior and Le dama Ole Kina.In Sakaja’s proposal, counties should continue receiving 316 billion Kenya shillings using the old sharing formula and the added money be shared using the new formula of one body one shilling.
Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka with his ODM counterpart Raila Odinga are in full support of the new sharing formula (one to one).Ruto is in support of the old formula and it is alleged that the leaders are giving their views based on what they are targeting in the next general elections. The debate is not yet adjourned.
