  • 1 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. I also support this amendment because prison officers and police officers have different training. While they can do the work of the police under special circumstances, I do not think we should have a law which allows them just to act like police officers. Therefore, I support. view
  • 1 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: On a point of order, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. view
  • 1 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. I was just wondering. From what the Leader of the Majority Party said, even though he says this amendment is from the National Treasury, it is not clear why they are amending the NHIF Act. He needs to make it clear so that we can know what we are supporting or not supporting. view
  • 1 Mar 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you. I support this amendment. What the Vice-Chairman is saying makes a lot of sense and, more so, with regard to the penalties where he proposes that we increase the fine from Kshs10,000 to Kshs5 million. This is going to be good for the economy. We will make sure that people comply with the law. So, I support. view

I remember that some time back, we reviewed membership for all commissions and most of the Members were of the opinion that the membership of this commission should be reduced to a maximum of five members. The idea was to address the issue of having bloated commissions and save public resources so that ... view
  • 16 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. I am aware that the petitioner is in order to present the petition before this House. My appeal to the Departmental Committee on Finance, Planning and Trade is that this petition be taken seriously in terms of deliberations. This petition is about an independent commission. We have a number of constitutional independent commissions in this country. My appeal is that this petition should be dealt with in a way that would clear all the issues to do with independent commissions. I am getting concerned that such a petition could be coming to this House to scare ... view

  • 16 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman. Maybe the explanation is not very clear. Let me help in terms of explaining the essence of this amendment. Hon. Members, you realise that as a House, we have been given a bigger mandate in terms of budget-making. The experience has been that when the BPS is presented to this House, and that happens in the month of February, the House is left with minimal time to analyse the budget and be able to give the right advice as representatives of the people. So, this amendment is trying to do two important things. The ... view
  • 16 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: House, to look at the BPS. We will also have an enforcement mechanism to make sure that resolutions made by the House are adhered to in terms of annual estimates. That is the essence. I support. view
