Parliament introduces clock-in system to fight absenteeism
On Thursday monitored the attendance and found out that less than 150 legislators out of the 433 attended that day's sitting.

Parliament has activated a new electronic clock-in system to monitor the number of MPs attending plenary sessions.

On Thursday monitored the attendance and found out that less than 150 legislators out of the 433 attended that day's sitting. By 5:30pm 183 MPs had shown up at the session where ministerial statements were tabled.

MPs use their thumbprint to register attendance, and they are required to do the same when leaving, to monitor the amount of time they spend in the House.The legislators hope that the system will instill responsiveness among them.The measure is part of the Shs28 billion integrated security system for parliament procured from a Chinese firm.
