  • 23 Apr 2014 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Deputy Speaker. I do not come from a sugar growing area but I need to get this clarification because the problem of excess and illegal importation of sugar in this country is not new.

It did not even indicate what strategies the Government is putting in place to address the issue of cartels in that sector. So, could the Chairman tell us why the whole issue of cartels in the sector is not being addressed in the response? view

  • 23 Apr 2014 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman, I support the one on water drilling services. I think the explanation given by the Chairman is that this is done by the Government. You will realize that there is a lot of drilling which is done by Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and some of our development partners. I think this will affect such drilling in the dry areas like where I come from, namely Kitui and North Eastern, where the Majority Leader comes from. There are also areas where we do not need to increase air ticketing. If you ask how many Kenyans know about air ... view

  • 23 Apr 2014 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, let me also join hon. Sakaja in thanking the Members of this House for supporting these amendments.

So, I want just to challenge the groups concerned to take advantage of this legal framework and use this opportunity to make their lives better. I want to thank all the Members. I also want to thank Kenyans for making sure that we have this new law. view

  • 22 Apr 2014 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Speaker.

You realize that we have moved to about 43 per cent of the revenue, which is going to the county governments. As we say this amount has increased as a House, we need also to bear in mind that the revenue we are using is actually for the Financial Year 2009/2010, which means we are about three years behind. I am just trying to imagine if we used ... view
