  • 20 Nov 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. Let me just thank the Chair of the Committee for that report. I need clarification on one issue from the report; the Chair has said that the hospital is categorized as a non-profit-making hospital, which means the charges for medical services in this particular hospital are actually expected to be slightly lower than the normal commercial hospitals. While we appreciate the work of the Aga Khan Development Network, when you look at the charges of that particular hospital and compare them with other hospitals in Kenya, like Nairobi or Mater, you do not see ... view
  • 20 Nov 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. I also rise to support this very important Bill, bearing in mind the fact that accidents in this country happen daily these days. Many Kenyans die and others lose their limbs. Therefore, this Bill will help Kenyans once they get into such situation. I like the schedule because it will help judges and magistrates in terms of determining how much should be paid to individuals who have lost either their lives or limbs or arms. Once enacted, this law will help this country because previously, it was left to the discretion of judges and ... view
  • 19 Nov 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman, I think we are confusing issues here. The way this amendment is, personally, I oppose it. When we are through with this one, Jakoyo’s can come and then we support it. So, put the Question so that we oppose this and then when the other one comes, we support it. view
  • 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
