  • 26 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, I seek to second the Motion for approval of Solomon Kitungu as the Principal Secretary for State Department of Transport. In seconding the Motion, I would like to point out some of the cardinal points we considered as a Committee during the vetting process. We all know that the transport sector is one of the very key engines as we steer our country ahead. Considering the sensitivity of this docket, as a Committee, there were a few key issues we were particularly keen on, more particularly the academic qualifications, employment record and relevance of this to ... view

  • 14 Mar 2019 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. On the outset, I would like to totally reject these proposed amendments. I happen to serve in the Departmental Committee on Transport, Public Works and Housing. Therefore, I think these proposed amendments before us are a big joke. Looking at some of them, in my own view, they clearly show some very serious issues. There is either lack of seriousness, vested interest or people who are trying to seek relevance from the Senate Committee which dealt with this Bill. If you look at some of the proposals these people have come up with, you ... view
  • 14 Mar 2019 in National Assembly: the National Government Constituencies Development Fund Committee. The big question I have is: For what purpose? What value is it going to add and what role are they going to play? As you know very well, most of the Senators have been trying to seek relevance in their respective counties. I think one way they feel they get that relevance is by sticking to some of these committees through what we are now deliberating on. As far as I am concerned, this is totally unacceptable. The other issue I would want to point out is it appears that the Senators ... view

  • 6 Nov 2018 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker for giving me this opportunity to add my views on this particular Bill. First and foremost, I would like to emphasise that this Bill has come at no better time because of what is happening in my Nyandarua County. Some of the issues which have been highlighted in this particular Bill are things we see being done openly in Nyandarua County. In particular, I would like to comment on the issue of the three-quarter majority. This is a critical issue. On the issue of impeaching a speaker, I feel that the threshold should remain ... view
  • 6 Nov 2018 in National Assembly: The other issue is that this Bill should have tackled the issue of nominated MCAs. Most of them have become guns for hire. Most of them are not answerable to the people directly because no one elected them. They are selected. In most county assemblies, governors use the nominated MCAs to achieve their ill motives, especially when it comes to the issue of voting. One element we should consider is that if nominated MCAs come from one particular party, they The electronic version of the Official Hansard Report is for information purposes only.

  • 6 Nov 2018 in National Assembly: should have one vote. That will make the county assemblies manageable and that is the way to go. I do not want to dwell on the Bill. Most speakers who have contributed to this Bill have dwelt on most of the issues. I do not want to repeat myself. I want to emphasise and reemphasise that we should not make the issue of removal of a speaker automatic. We should make it difficult because in the first instance, that speaker was elected by the MCAs. What happens is that with time, when most of the governors see that they cannot ... view
  • 22 Feb 2018 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker for giving me this opportunity to air my views on this Bill. The primary objective of the Kenya Roads Bill, 2017, is to give effect to the Fourth Schedule of the Constitution in relation to the road sector. Infrastructure network plays a pivotal role in advancement of economies world over and Kenya is not an exception. The main objective of the Bill is to streamline for the better issues pertaining to the road sector. view
  • 22 Feb 2018 in National Assembly: There are some cardinal points in the Bill, which in my view are of great importance. I would like to point out just a few. Pursuant to the Fourth Schedule of the Constitution, county governments have a responsibility to develop and manage county roads in regard to this presentation. In regard to the presentation made by the Council of Governors, if looked at The electronic version of the Official Hansard Report is for information purposes only.
