  • Description

    The presidents of Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda on Friday (26 June) announced reforms which will simplify their joint parliamentary procedures.

    They had held a meeting beginning Thursday in Nairobi to discuss this and other matters of common interest to the East African Community.

    Tanzania's President, Julius Nyerere, and President Obote of Uganda, arrived in the Kenyan capital two days ago (24 June) for consultations with President Kenyatta.

    A communique issued at the conclusion of their meeting said that the East African Legislative Assembly which sits thrice yearly-alternatively in the three capitals-will undergo a streamlining process. Bills will in future be given only two readings; the committee stage will be omitted. Parliamentary questions will receive only written replies, and the Hansard reports will be discontinued.

    Other items on the three leaders' agenda were the proposed Community membership of Ethiopia, Zambia, Burundi, Rwanda and Congo Kinshasa, and the co-ordination of development within the Community.
