MPs can now change Truth commission report

PHOTO | FILE President Uhuru Kenyatta receives the TJRC report from commission chairman Bethwel Kiplagat at State House, Nairobi, in May. MPs on Thursday night made changes to the law that established the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission in a way that could allow them to change the substance of the commission’s report.

What you need to know:

  • The Justice and Legal Affairs had initially agreed to insert a clause in the Bill to amend the TJRC Act to prevent MPs from changing the report.
  • Mr Dualle, who is also the URP-elected MP for Garissa Town, said the TJRC was a creation of the House and MPs were within their rights in seeking to amend the report.
