What is the Mace?

 

The Mace is an ornamental club made of brass carried by the Sergeant-at-Arms, to whom is assigned the duty of attending to the Speaker of Parliament.

It symbolises authority, which the State has vested in the Speaker. 

The Mace is an important symbol of authority bestowed on parliaments. 

Without the Mace in position, Parliaments cannot sit, debate as it would have no power to debate and pass laws for order, development and good governance of the country.
