A first session of the second leadership retreat of the National Assembly was on Friday morning momentarily disrupted after Minority Leader John Mbadi made a comment that appeared to defend the withdrawal of security detail of DP Ruto allied MPs. 
Trouble started when the Suba South MP John Mbadi told MPs not to politicize State officials issues, a comment that irked MPs whose security detail was withdrawn last week by the interior ministry.
CS interior Fred Matiangi sat quietly as MPs disrupted the  Suba South MP’s speech.
The MPs include Laikipia women rep Cate Waruguru, Pokot south MP David Pkosing, Lungalunga MP Khatib Mwashetani,  and their Kandara counterpart Alice Wahome.
On the other hand, National Assembly has once again taken issue with the Senate for continuing to duplicate the work done by the National Assembly.
Majority leader Aden Duale and his counterpart John Mbadi said that the continuous duplication of roles by the Senate is making it difficult for the executive to effectively cooperate.
The MPs noted that the role of the Senate is to strictly oversight county affairs and termed the Senate’s continuous summons of National Government Officials as misuse of taxpayers money.
Duplication of roles by the two houses was witnessed during the probe of the Ruaraka land saga.
