  • 6 Apr 2006 in National Assembly: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, Sir. I am referring to your comment that some hon. Members have not supplied their information. I think I will be right to say the Research Department needs a jolt because information on some hon. Members of this House is available on international websites. When you see Parliament providing half-a-page or four lines about hon. Minister Dr. Kituyi or hon. Dr. Godana, it just shows that those who are preparing it have no information or do not know where to get the information. view
  • 4 Apr 2006 in National Assembly: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir. Where is the note verbal? The Assistant Minister laid on the Table some documents the first time he answered the Question. However, he did not lay on the Table the note verbal. I want him to lay on the Table, a copy of the note verbal from the Armenian Government. view
  • 4 Apr 2006 in National Assembly: Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir, it is a pity that the question is eliciting too much passion to the detriment of the public actually getting to know what is happening. I know that you have directed the Assistant Minister to lay the note verbal on the Table tomorrow, which he referred to as the justification of the validity of the passports. A question was also asked as to why there was double registration of two different companies in the same name. The Assistant Minister knows that, that is illegal. He has not responded to that question. Finally, could the Assistant Minister ... view

  • 29 Mar 2006 in National Assembly: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I think we need the Chair to revisit with clear guidelines, the issue of what matters are sub judice . Not every matter which is remotely touched by our courts is sub judice . The rule of sub judice was developed to ensure that this House does not discuss publicly a matter which the court has to decide. Out of respect, this House does not interfere or influence what is in court. This same Minister, yesterday, I recall very clearly, resisted to answer the question on the grounds that the communication was internal to Government and was ... view
  • 29 Mar 2006 in National Assembly: Mr. Speaker, Sir, it is really sad to note that 40 years after Independence our people in the north are still engaging in the things that are the subject of this short intervention by the Minister. Insecurity in Marsabit and Moyale districts and along the Kenya/Ethiopia border has gone from bad to worse in the last one dozen years on account of the persistent OLF factor. In the last one year, things have got out of hand. The hon. Member referred to July last year which is a blot on the calendar of this country and on the history of ... view
  • 28 Mar 2006 in National Assembly: Mr. Speaker, Sir, it is really surprising that a brilliant lawyer like Mr. M. Kariuki can advance such a lame argument. Even if the House has decided in the same Session, in my view, leave alone a different Session, on a matter and then new circumstances set in; new facts which were not before the House when it dealt with the first report come up, the House is competent by virtue of its jurisdictional restriction to re-examine the matter. In any case, this matter is coming up in a different Session. view
  • 28 Mar 2006 in National Assembly: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I was concluding when I said that if the House, even in the same Session, leave alone the situation before us, where we are in a different Session--- When the House has ended a Session or six months within the same Session, it can revisit a Motion that it has already disposed of. However, if the House, in the same Session was to receive new facts about a matter it had disposed of; facts which were not brought to its attention or were not before it when it first dealt with that matter, it is competent to ... view
  • 28 Mar 2006 in National Assembly: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I assumed that what the hon. Member said was correct but, frankly, I cannot jog my mind to know in what terms and language we discuss this. However, I am saying that even conceding for the sake of argument as he says that we had on a specific date discussed the matter as reported, it will not bar the House Business Committee from pursuing further an unresolved audit query. view
  • 28 Mar 2006 in National Assembly: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I am at a loss as to what is bothering you. view
