Milk Bill 2019 Does Not Exist,says Clerk of National Assembly

Kenyan Parliament in session.COURTESY

Clerk of the National Assembly has dismissed reports which have been going around in the social media saying a bill labelled Milk Bill 2019 has been tabled  parliament for debate,a bill which seeks to regulate the  country’s milk industry.

A fake document,purported to be Milk Bill 2019, has been circulating on social media saying,once passed,farmers will not be allowed to  directly sell fresh  milk to their neighbors. The document says,before any selling of milk,farmers must pasturate and farmgate  their product before selling it  to their neighbors.These proposals made in the fake bill  was in bad taste to many Kenyans who associated the Bill to President Kenyatta,who has vastly invested in the milk industry.

The other outrageous proposals in the dismissed document were that farmers were prohibited from selling milk to hawkers.That any payments would be made in terms of milk quality and not quantity.

Issuing a statement to dismiss the document,Clerk of the National Assembly Michael Sialal said such a bill was neither proposed,nor tabled before the National Assembly.

”There is no such bill either proposed or tabled before parliament for debate by legislatures.The authors of this information are hereby warned  to abstain from circulating malicious falsehoods to the public with intention of causing panic,” he said.
