  • 16 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, I rise to support this Motion. It is really frustrating to Kenyans when we read this Motion that KenGen and TARDA release volumes of water into the ocean. As the water flows downstream, it causes a lot of damage to crops and even to animals in the communities which live near the river. view
  • 16 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Most of the communities in those areas are on famine relief throughout the year. We ask ourselves: Why should we let such volumes of water go to the ocean when we are talking about famine relief in the same areas? I support this Motion because instead of this water flowing into the ocean, it should be tapped to be used for irrigation in such areas. If you look at the Ukambani area, where I come from, you realize that water is a major problem. People in big towns like Kitui and Mutomo just hear about water. They do not have ... view
  • 10 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Deputy Speaker. I rise also to support this Motion and, to me, this Motion is very important. It proposes thorough investigations on all matters relating to miraa . We are all aware that there is a lot of misinformation relating to view

  • 3 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Deputy Speaker. I also wanted to follow up on a Statement I requested about three weeks ago from the Committee on Transport, Public Works and Housing, and up to now I have not heard any communication from them. view
  • 3 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. I rise to support the Report and more so on the area of the TSC and the issue of hon. Mak’Onyango. Relating to the TSC commissioners, I think the Government is being very unfair to the teachers because we know the work of these commissioners. They handle very important roles for the teachers. These are issues to do with discipline and other important issues relating to teachers’ issues and I think it is important that these commissioners are appointed. As we are talking, we have only one commissioner and they need a quorum just ... view
  • 3 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Relating to the issue of hon. Mak’Onyango, I think it is very unfair that somebody was actually harassed by his own Government and as a result of that harassment a decision was made so that, that person is compensated. However, for the last almost 30 years this compensation has not been forthcoming. It is very unfair to such a Kenyan. I do not know whether the Government is waiting for this character to die and then they pay the money to the relatives or the family members. So, what is the delay for? view
  • 3 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, so, I think that it is important that this report is adopted and immediately the Committee on Implementation picks up the matter so that hon. Mak’Onyango is compensated. This is so that before God takes him away at whatever time that is planned, he will be able to enjoy some of this money. I think he has suffered enough and it is very unfair that the Government keeps on delaying. It makes very lame excuses which do not make sense to anybody. I really support this report that this hon. Member should be compensated. view
