  • 28 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: The other issue is donor funding. Every year, we get a lot of money from our development partners. But as we budget at times, we do not budget as by the expectations of donors by providing the counterpart funding. If we do not do it, we will find the donor component is provided but the local one is not and, therefore, we cannot move on with that project. As we move forward, this is an area we need to have a listing of all projects which are donor-funded and be able to say that this is the much we require ... view
  • 28 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: The other issue is sanitary towels. This came from the Departmental Committee on Education, Research and Technology. I must congratulate them for the work they did and I also did it in our meetings. I am surprised they are sneaking in an amendment this late which is not procedural. The issue of sanitary towels is very important. For the last three years now, we have provided resources for our young girls. We have spoken to a number of Members of Parliament and none of them has seen any of their schools benefit from this. That is why I agree that ... view
  • 28 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: The other thing is the technical--- view
  • 28 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: Hon. Speaker, I support that. It is important that they also be part of the budget-making process. view
  • 28 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: The other issue is technical institutions or what we call technical training institutes which we have constructed all over the country. Through the Budget and Appropriations Committee, funds have been provided and a number of them have been constructed in the country but, there is the issue of tutors. We have very good and beautiful structures all over the country. They are admirable, but they really cannot provide the service expected because of lack of tutors. It is important as we move forward, to allocate some money so that tutors are employed and the institutions become operational. On the issue ... view
  • 28 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: I appreciate, Hon. Speaker. I was saying we should not, as a House, allow any new project to take off in a ministry, department or agency when they already have incomplete projects. That would be poor financial management. In situations where organisations have started projects and they are ongoing, let us provide resources for the completion of those projects before getting new proposals for new projects. With those remarks, I support the adoption of this Report. view
  • 16 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman. Just as the Chairman of the Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security, Hon. Kamama, has said, the purpose of this amendment is to ensure that there is consistency in the law we are making. This amendment is to ensure that there is consistency and harmonisation in that particular clause. I support. view
  • 5 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. Even as I support this amendment, Hon. Pukose is being very mean with his explanation. This amendment has about six bullets. Some of them are even talking about deleting a paragraph where a member of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya representing the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) should be deleted. I thought it makes a lot of sense for some of those details to be explained. Why do we not want members of the private sector to be part of this important Board? He has been mean. view
  • 5 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: But, even with that, I support. As we move forward, it is important that he provides the House with more details so that we make decision from an informed position. view
