to sign the report and

In a letter to Parliament Clerks, Wamalwa expressed his reluctance to collect the said dues owing to a difference in opinion with the NADCO report.

This coming after he had on Thursday, March 7th, 2024 been invited to share his bank information for facilitation of payment for participating in the process.

The former Defence Cabinet Secretary (CS) rejected the offer and requested Parliament to return the money meant for his pay to the National Treasury.

“Yesterday, I received an invitation from your officers to deliver my bank details to facilitate payment of my sitting allowances as a member of NADCO,” Wamalwa stated.

“As you are aware, I had already publicly declined to sign the said report after a serious disagreement arose over the failure to address the fundamental issue of reduction of the cost of living. I also declined to accept any payments from the said process.”

He added: “This is, therefore, to formally notify you that having already made my above position public, I neither have the intention nor the inclination to change my position and/or receive the said monies, which I request be returned to the exchequer.”

Wamalwa argued that the committee did not address the issues at hand among them audit of the 2022 electoral process, cost of living, restructuring and reconstitution of the IEBC, establishment and entrenchment of State offices and fidelity to the law on multiparty democracy effectively.

Despite expressing his gratitude for the opportunity to serve as a NADCO member, the DAP-K party boss underscored the importance of reforming IEBC for the prosperity of the nation.

“At the same time, I thank my coalition leader and Parliament for the opportunity to serve in this important capacity as a member of the NADCO committee,” he stated.

“An independent and credible electoral and boundaries commission is vital to the future of Kenya as a stable democratic nation.”
