The National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has ordered for a second round of voting on President Kenyatta’s fuel levy after MPs disputed the first voting results.

Speaker Muturi said the screens in the House showed that there were 352 MPs in the House, which was more than the 349 members of the National Assembly.

The speaker suspended the sitting for 15 minutes to have the anomaly rectified.

“I have contacted the ICT desk to ensure that the mistake doesn’t occur again. I propose to suspend the sitting for 15 minutes,” said Muturi.

Ruaraka MP TJ Kajwang had earlier accused Majority Leader Aden Duale of leading a walkout of members to cripple the voting on the contentious levy.

Some members walked out of the assembly cripling the voting process.
