Moderation reports of the two KICA amendment bills 2019

Grace, thanks for sharing the reports.

Mercy and Kivuva, thanks for the moderation and putting up the reports.
Mubarikiwe SANAA!

Victor, while the assurance is great after all the noise that was made, has
this been publicly communicated as the bills were? I think it is TOO EARLY
BREATHE A SIGH OF RELIEF knowing our political class. We could wake up to a
BILL PASSED AWAITING PRESIDENTIAL ASSENT… God forbid!
