  • 9 Oct 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Deputy Speaker for giving me this opportunity to contribute to this important Motion. At the outset, I want to say that I support this Motion. I am aware that the Standing Orders of this House have a provision for Departmental Committees. They also provide for ad hoc committees. While we have had hon. Members here seeking adjournment of the House to discuss issues of national importance, the Committee on Transport, Public Works and Housing has not made request to discuss road safety. It is important that this House discusses this important Motion on road safety. Life is ... view

  • 2 Oct 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Deputy Speaker. I rise to support this Motion because it is very important. Just as hon. Mwaura is saying, it is important that we use the word “resolve”. I was also wondering whether, other than just saying “reviewing the prices”, we actually say “reviewing the prices upwards”. That is really the basic thing. If you look at milk and what we call the nutritional value of milk - I am talking about milk from a cow, goat and camel. Over time, milk has been used in place of mother’s milk where mothers are not able to allow ... view
  • 26 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Deputy Speaker, I really struggled to hear what the Chairman was saying, but I think I got the last bit which is of interest to me. This is where he has said that they are waiting for the contract to be signed. This road is very important to the Kamba Community and more so the people of Kitui County. What he has said in terms of feasibility studies and signing of some of the contracts is true. However, this contract with a bank in China has really taken a long time. I remember that before former President Kibaki retired, ... view
  • 26 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: to take over and do the same. I want the signing of this contract to be accelerated so that this road is built. It is our mainstay in terms of opening the area. Hon. Deputy Speaker, I appreciate the efforts of the Committee in giving us this information. However, I think that through the Chairperson, we need to push the Cabinet Secretary so that the signing of the contract is finalized. view
  • 26 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: On a point of order, hon. Deputy Speaker. Yesterday, the Leader of the Majority Party said that, in terms of the Chairpersons of Committees and inclusion to Committees, the Coalition has a final say. Today he is requesting you to order on the performance of the Chairpersons of Committees. Is he in order to do so, or should he not just change these Chairpersons and get a new team? view

  • 26 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, I rise to oppose this Motion. The reason is not the content, but the need to extend the time. I am one of the few Members who stood here to support this Motion. I said that this Committee needs to come up with a report so that Kenyans know the position of miraa . I have seen Kenyan ladies in Kitui Central constituencies demonstrate. It is the wearer of the shoe who knows where it pinches most. I said that it is on that basis that I was supporting the Motion. Now we are being asked ... view
