NAIROBI– The Speaker of the National Assembly, the Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Moses Wetang’ula has assured the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM) of legislative inclusivity in the National Assembly business.

Speaking on Thursday when he hosted the delegation, led by Mr. Al-Hajji Hassan Ole Naado, the National Chairman & Chairman of Kenya Hajj Mission at his office in Parliament buildings, Speaker Wetang’ula assured them his support in addressing their concerns.

They discussed array of issues concerning legislative inclusivity and representation of religious associations in key legislative proposals.

Speaker Wetang’ula encouraged them to establish connections within the Parliamentary System adding that this would allow members from the Muslim religion to identify gaps that require legislative attention and implementation.

Hon. Wetang’ula reaffirmed that any legislation of public interest will be free from religious, ethnicity nor regional discrimination as we are geared towards building a peaceful and forward-looking country.

The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims is registered as the umbrella body of all Muslims organizations, Societies, Mosque Committees and groups in Kenya. SUPKEM was formed in 1973 following a general conference held at Quran house, Mfangano Street in Nairobi.

The body is mandated to guide the Muslim community members on their rights and responsibilities as Kenyan citizens. SUPKEM’s thematic areas of intervention are peace and conflict resolution; governance and human rights; and advocacy and public awareness on social issues.
