  • 19 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: An hon. Member asked whether the money we are talking about for the next financial year includes the Kshs5.4 billion. We put this question to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance yesterday. He assured us that the allocation for the CDF in the next financial year is Kshs23 billion. So, because of the Kshs5.4 billion, we will get Kshs28.4 billion in the next financial year. That is an addition of Kshs5.4 billion, which takes care of the CDF money that had been borrowed to meet other national needs. So, we will not lose view
  • 19 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, thank you for this opportunity. I rise to support this Motion. When you look at our Constitution, Article 43(1)(f), every Kenyan is entitled to education. I think it is on the basis of this that we all need to have our children going to school. But when we look at the ASAL areas, we realize that girls are disadvantaged in terms of accessing education. When you analyze the national education indicators, they are all unfavourable to the girl-child. For example, when you look at the enrolment rate, you will realize that it is low for ... view

  • 12 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: be supported. Since this Council was put in place after the elections it is unfortunate that no money has been released to them despite the fact that they have been ready to start their activities. Hon. Speaker, Sir, we know that as politicians we used the youth to assist us during the campaigns. It is important that they get supported. When you look at the youth we are talking about you will realize that they are very educated. They are in a position to plan their own activities and organize their own issues. Most of them have the potential to ... view
  • 12 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: When we were campaigning, we made some promises to the youth. Some of them were depending on us when we were campaigning. Now that the campaigns are over, we have a situation which can pose challenges in terms of security because the youth are no longer getting the kind of support that we used to give them during the campaign period. They have now become a security threat. The faster we get the youth of this country organised, the better for us, as Members of Parliament, and for other Kenyans. view
  • 12 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: The Council made a very detailed presentation to the Budget and Appropriations Committee, in which I sit. From the presentation, it was very clear that they were very much aware of the programmes they want to implement. On the basis of that presentation, I thought it would be very important for them to be given the money because they will start implementing their work plan, which they shared with us, as a Committee. The only challenge we had with the Council at that time is that it looked like they did not have a Ministry that had given them a ... view
  • 12 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, another thing we need to note is that this Council is quite representative. The current Council members are quite well distributed within the country. So, these people come from different parts of the country. Therefore, the youth in this country are fairly represented in the Council. Our support will enable all the youth in this country to benefit from their activities. They will be able to share information. Hon. Members realise that the youth are actually ahead of most of us in terms of use of IT to share information. With the support they will get ... view
