20 MPs are currently in Russia for the World Cup for a ‘bench-marking’ exercise.

The legislators, led by nominated senator Millicent Omanga strongly came out to defend themselves claiming that some of them including herself are self-sponsored.

National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi has defend the legislators saying that the visit is not a bad thing and that the Sports and Culture Committee as well as the Bunge FC members were the only ones attending.
