The move is set to see 375 legislators who served during the period benefit as their monthly pension will rise from from sh 33,000 to 100,000.
“That bill amended by deleting clause two and substituting therefore the following new clause-in sub-section(1) (b) by deleting the word ‘two’ and substituting therefore the word ‘one’,” the new amendments to Bill read.
