Nominated Senator Paul Njoroge has asked the President not to sign the amended electoral law. Mr Njoroge, who is affiliated to Jubilee, differed with his colleagues, noting that the move to amend the law was a plan to rig the 2017 General Election.

Senate Speaker Ekwee Ethuro has summoned senators for a special session today to discuss the amendments. Last week, MPs from Jubilee and CORD clashed in Parliament before the amendments were passed.
