Spouses of MPs will be treated to a sumptuous dinner Friday and a night-out at five-star facilities like Intercontinental Hotel and Sarova Stanley at taxpayers’ expense.

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has invited the spouses of the 349 MPs to the gala night.

“The workshop will also have a family session where member’s spouses are invited to attend and participate during a gala night,” Michael Sialai, the clerk of the National Assembly said in a communication to MPs to invite their spouses for the gala night.

“It is on this basis that I am kindly requesting you to invite your spouses to attend and participate during the gala evening on Thursday, September, 21, 2017. Accommodation will also be provided for the spouses on that night.”
