  • 26 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, I want to raise the issue that Hon. Babu has just stated, that, only the youth Members of Parliament are supposed to contribute to this Bill. Let me correct him by saying that we are the representatives. You cannot stand while I am standing. view
  • 26 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: I just want to correct, Hon. Babu. I know I am young. Every Member here is representing youths in their respective constituencies. I want to correct the Member and ask him to withdraw that statement immediately. view
  • 26 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. I rise to support this Bill. First, I want to recognise that such a Bill must be heavily contributed to by youthful Members of Parliament. We keep on ignoring the youths’ voice by trying to say that we are youthful in our mind and hearts. However, the Constitution clearly describes who a youth is. A youth is a person or Kenyan who is below the age of 35. If I give you my Identification Card now, it is clear that I am 32 years old. Many youths have missed chances because of elders who ... view
  • 26 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: run and make money in international arenas, others who want to play soccer while others want to sing. Therefore, there is an entire myriad of expertise from young people that needs to be conglomerated into a Bill to ensure that young people are well, their voices are heard and their activities are recognised. Their voices in decision making is key. In fact, some of the proposals to the BBI report should be that if we have two deputy prime ministers, one deputy prime minister must be below 35 years so that one day, I will be standing here as a ... view
  • 26 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Moreover, we can also say the same to cabinet secretaries. We can escalate it to the ministries. If we have a Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs, the Assistant Cabinet Secretary should be a young person below 35 years. We are leaving a whole generational gap. We have old people running our systems. So, when they are not there, who will run the Government? We need to nurture young people. We need to put the young people in the system, so that they can learn the ways of running the Government. The only way they can learn is by assisting them. ... view
  • 26 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: So, you cannot leave a whole generational gap. Moreover, youth leadership is not new. Historically, people who have fought for revolutions were young people like Thomas Sankara, Muamar Gadhafi and Martin Luther King Jnr. All these people achieved while very young. Therefore, most of the achievements that have changed the course of government and that of humanity were done by young people. The recent Prime Minister of Australia is 32 years old and the President of New Zealand is 38 years old. Moreover, there are many young presidents in the world who are doing marvelous work. Therefore, if we do ... view
  • 26 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Therefore, we are continuously ignoring our generation and our future. We will eventually be left with a shell of a country if we do not take care of the young people. Thank you and I beg to support. view
  • 25 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, I am quickly perusing through the Report before I make my remarks. So, give the chance to the next Member then I will take the second chance. view
  • 25 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. First of all, I rise to support this Report. I want to commend the good Members of this Committee for a very good work, especially because there is a new Committee. They have done a very fantastic work by visiting the areas and coming up with a very wonderful Report, a Report that is very honest and clear in thought. I happen to be a Member of Parliament for Saboti which is at the epicentre of IDPs. Saboti falls within Trans Nzoia, a very cosmopolitan county. During the political upheaval, we had influx of ... view
