We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Former Kajiado West MP, Moses Sakuda, on Friday handed in his application for the national assembly speaker position to the House clerk.

Sakuda said his application to House clerk on Monday.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday, through a gazette notice, announced the first sitting of the 12th bicameral Parliament to be Thursday next week.

As a seasoned politician, Sakuda has represented two constituencies in Kajiado North after the demise of Prof. George Saitoti through a by-election.

In 2013, Sakuda was elected MP in Kajiado West constituency after it was created by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

“I have held wide consultations with my former colleagues in the national assembly across the political divide, and they are in full support of my ambitions to be the speaker of the national assembly in the 12th Parliament,” said an upbeat Sakuda.

He said he has had wide experience in parliamentary matters, and served as a vice chair in the House lands committee and a member of various house committees.

In 2013, he was proposed for the majority whip position but sacrificed his bid for Kajiado South MP, Katoo Ole Metito after a resolution by the Maa Parliamentary Group meeting.

He has a master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Divinity, and previously served as Director of programmes and projects in the Ministry of Energy.

“I have begun the process of picking nomination forms from the offices of the Clerk and my application will be dropped on Monday August 28 at 9am,” said Sakuda.

“Coming from a marginalised community that overwhelmingly voted the Jubilee Party, and moreover historically the speaker’s post was warmed by the Maasai community under our one and only Francis Ole Kaparo, I stand a better chance for the seat,” he said.

He urged all MPs elect across the entire political divide to vote for him.
