Senate Mashinani paused as Pandemic rages. The last session was held in Kitui.

The Senators say all upcoming sessions will be organised in Nairobi.

While moving the motion to cancel the Senate Mashinani sessions, Deputy Majority Leader Fatuma Dullo (Isiolo) said perils modelled by the pandemic cannot allow the legislators to sit outside Nairobi.

"Covid-19 has been persistent in the country, resulting in disruption of the Senate and Parliament as a whole.," Dullo said.

"The reason why we are not having this sitting outside Nairobi is because of the challenges we are facing," she added.

Minority Chief Whip Mutula Jr said the current conditions caused by the virus cannot permit them to assemble outside the Nairobi.

The inaugural Senate Mashinani was held in Uasin Gishu in 2018.

Last year's sessions were held in Kitui.

During the Mashinani sessions, senators conduct all their business, including plenary and Committee sittings outside Nairobi.
