  • 19 Nov 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman, I support the proposed amendments. On the issue of the female, let us remove the word “female”. I want to support the appointments by the county women representatives. This is the reason: When you look at the CDF Board, Members of Parliament at the constituency level have actually appointed disabled people in those committees. So, we can give this opportunity to our sisters. We have no problem with that. view
  • 19 Nov 2013 in National Assembly: On a point of order, hon. hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman, Sir. I think that the House is being misled. Regulation 15(iv) says that the total number of ward representatives shall have equal number of either gender with the women quota providing for, at least, one female youth. This is clear. It reads “one female youth” So, what is this that we are being told? view
  • 19 Nov 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman, with all due respect to your ruling, maybe, I need to seek some clarification. Looking at the proposed re-allocation, it does not affect the total allocated amount by the Treasury Cabinet Secretary. Parliament voted, in terms of money. So, I am wondering whether the Committee really made any mistake by just suggesting that we move an amount of money from grants, so that it becomes loans. The totality of the amount still remains. So, I would like to hear your suggestion on that one. view
  • 6 Nov 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir. I want to seek clarification in relation to cash payment. The Vice-Chairman of the Committee has indicated that the IDPs were paid cash. We know that when money is paid in cash, there are chances that the money might be used for other purposes. So, is there a mechanism the Government has put in place to ensure that the money paid out to the IDPs is monitored, and that actually land is bought to avoid a situation where these IDPs remain where they are forever? The electronic version of the Official Hansard Report ... view

  • 31 Oct 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Speaker. I am not a member of the Committee and I want to thank this Committee for work well done. Initially when the discussion on this Bill started, most of the stakeholders were very skeptical of the Bill. I want to thank the Committee for the level of consultations which have taken place before we got to where we are. So, I think this is really setting the pace in terms of how to come up with Bills and enact laws after bringing on board all the stakeholders, so that the kind of laws that this House ... view
  • 31 Oct 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Speaker, I want to say a lot of thanks to this Committee; I think that all the other committees should actually emulate this kind of way of working, so that, as a House, we bring on board all Kenyans when enacting laws. Thank you, hon. Speaker. view
  • 29 Oct 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity. I rise on a point of order. If you look at this report on the page after 20, the hon. Wamalwa has actually signed it. Is he in order to mislead this House that he is not part of this report? view
  • 24 Oct 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir. I also rise to support this Motion. Despite the fact that this is a constitutional requirement to have this Bill in place, it is also a very important Bill. The reason is that election financing is the key to good governance. Most of the challenges that we have been facing in this country in terms of our leadership is more associated with the way we finance our elections. I agree with the Members who have said that almost 90 per cent of why one should be in this House is determined by how ... view
  • 23 Oct 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Deputy Speaker. I want to join hon. Members in seeking clarification from the Leader of Majority Party; I think it is obvious that he is struggling to answer the questions. I think procedurally, this appointment has issues. Being the Chief of Staff, that is okay because that is a personal appointment. However, being the Head of Public Service, it is unfair. This House vetted Cabinet Secretaries--- view
