Beatrice Elachi said ( about Beatrice Elachi ) : “We have been meeting online and have sectors from the executive submitting the estimates for the financial year 2020-21. The committee shall ensure that everything is done in time," he said. The executive has also submitted a supplementary appropriation bill to the assembly for consideration. The bill allocated the NMS Sh3.5 billion, which, however, was withdrawn and resubmitted with the estimates. It is likely that the legislators will be meeting virtually and hold plenary debates online as a Covid-19 containment measure. Elachi said it is possible for sessions to be held without the MCAs being physically in the chamber. The plenary sessions have in the meantime been reduced from three to two on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will be no sittings on Wednesdays to allow for the fumigation of the chamber and assembly precincts. "The assembly shall borrow from what the National Assembly has been doing.

Beatrice Elachi said ( about Beatrice Elachi ) : “We have been meeting online and have sectors from the executive submitting the estimates for the financial year 2020-21. The committee shall ensure that everything is done in time," he said. The executive has also submitted a supplementary appropriation bill to the assembly for consideration. The bill allocated the NMS Sh3.5 billion, which, however, was withdrawn and resubmitted with the estimates. It is likely that the legislators will be meeting virtually and hold plenary debates online as a Covid-19 containment measure. Elachi said it is possible for sessions to be held without the MCAs being physically in the chamber. The plenary sessions have in the meantime been reduced from three to two on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will be no sittings on Wednesdays to allow for the fumigation of the chamber and assembly precincts. "The assembly shall borrow from what the National Assembly has been doing. We shall be having two sessions in the morning and afternoon from 10am and 2.30pm on both days,” External link
