  • 3 Jul 2013 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, it is true that apart from alcohol and drugs, we have other substances that are affecting our young people in the society. Drug abuse is a growing problem among teenagers that has led to serious consequences well into their adulthood. I beg to move. view
  • 27 Jun 2013 in Senate: Thank you, Madam Temporary Speaker, for giving me this opportunity. I stand to support the Motion by Sen. Kipchumba. Madam Temporary Speaker, first, education is key. Primary and secondary education is very basic for the growth of a child. Devolving this function will enable us improve education and as a result there will be good performance in our schools. I say this because every school in every county wishes to be at the top. That means that we are encouraging competition within the various counties. Also, every county will want to be the best in the country, because we are ... view
  • 25 Jun 2013 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Sir, for this opportunity. Actually, this Motion could not end without me speaking because I represent the youth of this nation. It is a great pity as we have already seen and read that the majority of us are outside there, tarmacking because of lack of jobs. That is why I stand to support this Motion; that we need a Graduates Enterprise Fund, the reason being that in many cases, youth are used as statistics; indicating that we have 70 per cent youth in this country and 42 per cent of them are unemployed. That is ... view
  • 18 Jun 2013 in Senate: Thank you, Madam Temporary Speaker, for this opportunity. First, as the Kakamega County Delegation, I would like to condole those people who were killed in Nangili. It is on this note that I would like to talk about and support the Motion before the House. These people could not get the necessary treatment to survive just because there was no hospital nearby like in Nangili Market. They were rushed to Kongoni Hospital, but unfortunately, they were not also attended to. They did not get the treatment that they required. Madam Temporary Speaker, I have seen teenage boys suffer when they ... view
  • 21 May 2013 in Senate: Thank you Mr. Speaker, Sir, for giving me this opportunity. I have gone through Article 202 of the Constitution and also the Bill that has been brought to the House. The matter before the House is a matter of constitutionalism. It is a matter of national importance. We, as the Senate, should be the people to advocate for the success of devolution. If there is failure, Kenyans will blame us for it. To me, a sum of Kshs210 billion is not enough because we are dealing with livelihoods of the Kenyan people. It is a matter about provision of health ... view
  • 21 May 2013 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, what the Treasury has allocated to county governments is paltry or token. We, as the Upper House, must demand for an increase. We must protect the devolved governments in this country because we have no choice, to the echo sentiments by His Excellency the President. I would like to support the Motion with an amendment. I propose that where we have Kshs210 billion, it should be replaced to Kshs238 billion. Thank you. The electronic version of the Senate Hansard Report is for information purposes only. A certified version of this Report can be obtained from the Hansard ... view
  • 23 Apr 2013 in Senate: I thank you Mr. Speaker, Sir, for having caught your eye after a very long time. I will start by congratulating those who played a role in drafting the Kenyan Constitution and to all Kenyans who said “yes” in 2010. It has given me a chance to represent the youth in the Senate. Mr. Speaker, Sir, I will start by commenting on the issue of youth unemployment which is at 70 per cent. I recommend that the President should come out with a systematic framework that will be used to to curb this issue rather than just saying that we ... view
  • 17 Apr 2013 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I have an observation to make; I do not think the youth is represented in this list. Thank you. view
