  • 5 Apr 2017 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman, listening to what Hon. Musimba is saying, in terms of explaining the imports of this amendment, I am tempted to support him. I actually support him because what he is saying it that there is need, other than just indicating the network coverage, to do an audit to confirm that it will work to avoid a situation where it could collapse like it has always been doing.

Even though it has come late as we are just winding up the 11th Parliament, I am happy we now have a framework of ... view
  • 4 Apr 2017 in National Assembly: marginalised to catch up with the rest of the country. This is quite important. I am happy we have this Bill, which has been brought to the House. As I second, one of the challenges we have as a country is ensuring that we get value for money.
