  • 15 Oct 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. Let me give my brief comments on this Petition by my friend, Bishop Khamala. As Hon. Mbadi has put it, I thought he was talking of “Kambas” but I took my time to get to know what he was talking about. Let us appreciate the fact that, that is a dialect issue. We have different dialects. I also concur with the petitioner because once an institution has been established in a certain place and you decide to relocate it, you really inconvenience people. Some people will already have invested in that area in terms of constructing ... view
  • 15 Oct 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Deputy Speaker, for giving me this opportunity to contribute to this Bill. At the outset, I want to congratulate Hon. Ichung’wah for this Bill. It is a well thought-out Bill that will give a foundation on how we handle disasters in this country. I hope the Authority will live to the wish and the mandate of the Bill, so that we can change this country from its reactive nature towards disasters. Our country is prone to droughts, heavy rains and other disasters, but unfortunately, we only react once calamities befall us. We do not prepare for the ... view

  • 1 Oct 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. First, I want to thank Hon Benjamin for bringing this Bill to this House. This Bill is crosscutting. It favours persons of 59 years of age and below. This means it caters for the youth and the elderly. The Bill is seeking to set in law the 60-year retirement age so that we can hold accountable the appointing authorities that extend the retirement age limit. view
  • 1 Oct 2020 in National Assembly: In this country, more than 70 per cent of the young people are not employed. The reason is that, jobs in this country are given to aged people. We know that after the age of 60 years, one should be enjoying his retirement as fresh blood employees are active in office working. Madam Speaker, secondly, this will help graduates who graduated the other day to be employed in offices. Currently, the people being employed are cronies of leaders. So, it is good for this Bill to be enacted into law so that we can have mandatory retirement. An officer should ... view

(ii) Could the Ministry consider diplomatic intervention to ensure that the Kenyan, who is allegedly being illegally held and languishing at Maweni Remand Prison in Tanga, Tanzania, is released without any further delay? view
  • 29 Sep 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. For the three years I have stayed in this City, I have learnt a lot. I also want to confirm that I was called, but unfortunately, I was not in town, so, I did not visit them. This House must come up with a regulation which will regulate these institutions so that if it is a must that any rating be done, it should be done according to the funding which we are given and the work we do in this House as well as in committees. With that, I rest my case. view
