MPs will repay their mortgage and car loans before the end of their term on August 7, the administrator of the two schemes has said.

Michael Sialai, the Clerk of the National Assembly said none of the 416 lawmakers will lose their luxurious, top of the range vehicles and palatial homes at the end of their term.

“I want to assure Kenyans that no funds will be lost because at the end of it (term), all loans will be recovered,” Mr Sialai told a two-day workshop for parliamentary journalists in Mombasa.

“Unlike in the past, we now know the calendar of Parliament and therefore able to project recoveries,” Mr Sialai said.
