  • 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

  • 2 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, I rise to oppose this Motion. I am not opposing it because the issues being raised here are not important but it is because I do not think the establishment of a Disaster Management Authority is going to be the solution. When we look at what is happening in this country today, we have a number of institutions which can handle the mandate of disaster preparedness, for example, the issue of roads and bridges. We are all talking about roads and bridges being washed away by floods. But if you look at what is happening, ... view

  • 19 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Speaker, Sir. I am a Member of the Budget and Appropriations Committee, and I think there is a question which has not been answered. So, I would like to make that clarification. view
  • 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: Hon. Speaker, Sir, I rise to support this Motion because these issues are very close to my heart. This Motion is timely.

  • 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
