The vice chairman of the National Assembly's Constitution Implementation Oversight Committee has disputed suggestions that MPs want to amend the Constitution to change the 2017 election date from August to December in order to earn more salaries.

Speaking at Nkairamiram Primary School during the commissioning of the administration, Moitalel ole Kenta, who is also the Narok North MP, said the August date was not ideal as it would disrupt national examinations and affect the Budget.
