  • 12 Mar 2020 in National Assembly: On a point of order, Hon. Speaker. For the Petition by Hon. Oluoch, you will recall that we continuously have experienced this kind of dispute and sometimes it has grown into conflict that destabilises peace in the area. As you direct that this Committee deals with this Petition, there are other petitions related to land which involve the military and some security agencies which should also be expedited.
