A tweet claiming that Kenya African National Union (KANU) Party does not have any elected legislator is FALSE.
“There is no elected KANU legislator for the first time since independence,” the tweet states.
The Cambridge Dictionary defines a legislator as a member of an elected group of people, who have the power to make or change laws. In Kenya, the legislature, otherwise known as Parliament, is responsible for making and changing laws.
According to section 93 of the country’s 2010 Constitution, Parliament consists of the National Assembly and the Senate.
Is it true then, that no legislators were elected to the National Assembly and Senate on a KANU Party ticket? We did some digging.
