The Garissa Township lawmaker challenged the media to read and understand the Bill before reporting about it.
“I encourage the members of fourth estate to present facts to Kenyans and stop propaganda,” he said.
Duale said that the misreporting has painted MPs in bad light.
“What we read in the media nowadays is propaganda.They (journalists) are no longer professional,” he added.
There have been reports that lawmakers are planning to amend the Parliamentary Service Bill in efforts to hike their pay and allowances.
A section of politicians among them former Prime Minister Raila Odinga have already hit out at the MPs over the alleged plot.
Raila says that the MPs plan is selfish adding that taxpayers will suffer more if lawmakers hike their pay.
Other politicians who have criticized the MPs alleged pay hike plan is Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and former Machakos senator Johnson Muthama.
