Speaker of the Senate Amason Kingi will kick off a weeklong induction ceremony for senators in Naivasha on Tuesday.

The purpose of this meeting is to get an appreciation for the Senate’s role in shaping policy and to discuss ways to strengthen devolution through prioritizing legislation.

There will be a total of 68 senators in this, the third Senate after devolution, with 47 elected and 21 nominated to serve.

Supreme Court Justice Martha Koome, together with the Secretaries of the Treasury, Devolution, Foreign Affairs, and the Attorney General, are among the high-profile speakers scheduled to address the lawmakers.

The senators were supposed to check in at Sawela Lodge on Monday at 4 o’clock, as per the instructions of Senate clerk Jeremiah Nyegenye.

Among the most talked-about topics are devolution’s implications for the relationship between the several branches of government, as well as any new difficulties or hopes that may arise.

Experts and panelists from the Commission on Revenue Allocation, the office of the Auditor General, the Controller of Budget, the Anti-graft body EACC, and the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights will be present to walk the members through the legislative agenda, the relationship with constitutional commissions and independent offices, and matters of national security.

Former journalist and current senator from Kitui county Enoch Wambua will lead a plenary debate on media relations and public awareness for the senators after they get an update on Kenya’s foreign policy.

Churchill Otieno, president of the Kenya Editor’s Guild (KEG), and Mark Kaigwa, a media expert, will give the presentations.

After being sworn in on September 8, this is the first time all senators will be in the same room together.
