  • 16 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman, I agree with you because one of the things we are facing is that we have challenges in the capacity of county assemblies. So, if we allow them more time, it will be better because even their capacity is not the capacity of our level, anyway. That is known. view
  • 16 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman. The intention of this amendment is very good. If you look at all the amendments being made to the Public Finance Management (PFM) Act, you will realise that they lean towards what we call ‘a treasury single account’. To me, this is the most important amendment out of the many amendments we have made in this law. This amendment is trying to help towards that end. I think we need to be a bit careful. We have allowed county governments to open accounts with the CBK. I suggest that we allow them to open ... view
  • 16 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman, it is also important to educate each other. The CBK is called the bank of last resort. It is where you borrow when you cannot borrow from any other place. People do not deposit their money with the CBK. I think there are bigger economic issues to do with these amendments, which we might need to think through. My appeal would be that for this particular one where we are tying them to only imprests accounts, we should allow them for now as we think through this particular amendment. view
  • 15 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. Let me join my other colleagues in supporting the appointment of Dr. Jane. The appointment is very important to the Commission in this country. When I listened to the presentation by the Mover of the Motion, it is clear that, in terms of experience, Dr. Jane has what it takes to do that important national duty. I know Jane. At one point when I was doing my Masters in Economics, she was doing a course in Economics at the The electronic version of the Official Hansard Report is for information purposesonly.

  • 15 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: University of Nairobi. When you look at the other Commissioners, you realise that one of them is Prof. Peter Kimuyu, who was then one of our lecturers. This is a case of a teacher being now supervised by a student. I am really happy when I see such a case because it simply says that in this world, you have to respect everybody because one day, they might be your boss as you continue in life. This is a lesson we should all learn as leaders. The fact that God has given us the chance to be leaders today does ... view
  • 15 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. This proposal makes a lot of sense and I am really attracted to the proposal of having a transactional advisor. At times, you realise that even though procurement officers are normally trained, there are cases where you need some technical expertise in terms of procurement. At times, the subject matter or the technicality of the issue might not be clear to them. To me, to bring on a transactional advisor to assist is a very good proposal in terms of adding value to the whole process and make sure that Kenyans get the best ... view
  • 15 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady, I support this amendment. As the Vice- Chairman of the Committee has put it, this is more of cleaning so that things are clearer in terms of interpretation of the law. I support. view
  • 15 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. I listened to the Leader of the Majority Party and he is raising an important matter. It is more of an administrative issue in terms of whether the PBO has the mandate to write directly to an institution or that has to come through the Clerk. I think that is just a matter of wording to get it right that even though they can The electronic version of the Official Hansard Report is for information purposesonly.

  • 15 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: request for information, it has to go through the normal procedure, which is the Clerk, and then the information is given to them. I want to support this amendment. view
