  • 7 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman. While I support the proposed experience of 10 years, I oppose the amendment regarding academic requirements. It is unfortunate that we want to reduce the academic requirement for appointment as Principal Secretary (PS) to Bachelor’s Degree. In the Civil Service, there are certain careers where you cannot progress to the next job group if you do not have a Master’s degree.

It is clearly there in law and money is not ... view
  • 2 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Hon. Deputy Speaker, this Bill is very important and we should make sure that it is implemented. When you compare what the Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA) recommended and what we have given them, you will realize that some elements have been left out. I must thank the drafters of this Bill because they are explaining why they were not able to give money as recommended by CRA. This is a constitutional requirement. You will recall there are also some important things which the CRA recommended, for example, the establishment of two regional cancer treatment centres which we have not ... view
