It is emerging out that the Speaker of the Senate, Hon. Kenneth Lusaka, has cleared five Senators to watch the FIVB Women’s World Volleyball championship that kicks off on Saturday, in Japan.
The five Senators: Christophet Lagat(Bomet), Irungu Kang’ata(Murang’a) and nominated Senators: Christine Zawadi, Beatrice Kwamboka and Victor Prengei.
Kenya’s Malkia Stikers are participating at this year’s championship, alongside compatriots, Cameroon.
The five Senators will each pocket a whooping Kshs. 1.2 Million for the two weeks. This is in accordance with the Parliamentary’s Service Commission rates where members are paid Kshs. 100,000 while on international trips. Their air tickets costs will also be footed by the ex chequer.
Surprisingly, the Kenyan players who are participating in championship were each paid Sh80,000 for the three weeks they will be in Tokyo. This means each player will get a per diem of just Ksh. 3,800.
The latest development comes after the Speaker to the National Assembly, Justin Muturi, turned down a request by 10 Legislators to also fly to Tokyo, Japan, to witness the games.
