Following the conclusion of the MoU with the IPU at the 140th Assembly, the Parliament of Kenya, as host of the East Africa Regional Hub organized an inaugural meeting of ICT Officers, Legal Officers and Clerks of Member Parliaments of the East Africa region (see photo) from 23 to 25 May in Nairobi. At the end of three days, hub participants from Kenya and Uganda agreed on the terms of reference, work plan and budget for the hub.
Under its terms of reference, the group agreed to meet virtually on a regular basis or when ad hoc needs arise, and to meet once a year face-to-face to review the hub’s activities. The hub further agreed to invite other parliaments to join the hub. A regional office in the Kenyan Parliament was established to coordinate the hub’s activities.
