The National Assembly is preparing to forward the Bribery Bill to President Uhuru Kenyatta for assent after a one-year delay.
The proposed law, modelled along the UK’s Bribery Act, seeks to punish private sector bribery especially in dealings with government and public agencies.
Majority leader Aden Duale said Bill is being fine-tuned before it is sent to the Head of State to either assent it or reject it with suggested improvements.
“We are now preparing a vellum copy which will shortly be sent to the President. I expect that before Christmas it will be signed into law,” Mr Duale told the Business Daily on Wednesday.
