  • 2 Dec 2021 in Senate: On a point of order, Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir. To add to what Sen. Mutula Kilono Jnr. has said, in the past, the reason why such Bills were subjected to The electronic version of the Senate Hansard Report is for information purposesonly. A certified version of this Report can be obtained from the Hansard Editor, Senate. view
  • 2 Dec 2021 in Senate: the Committee is because with a toothcomb, the Committee is able to go through the Bill and come up with amendments or form an opinion on the Bill, do a report which is always tabled here so that it guides the Members who have not had an opportunity to interrogate the Bill properly to contribute and understand the Bill more. In the absence of a report tabled before this House by the Committee, I feel that it is quite unfair for us to be rushed to pass the Bill yet we know the kind of problems that we have gone ... view
  • 2 Dec 2021 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir. The issue that Sen. Sakaja has raised is very important. I want to persuade you to ensure that this Parliament conducts its constitutional duty with caution and care because Parliament is not a conveyor belt. It is not a rubber stamp. view
  • 2 Dec 2021 in Senate: Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir, it is so demeaning that a name would be proposed, passed by a Committee and brought here one afternoon. It is then expected that we would just pass the name, without debating or having the opportunity to read the report and understand the basis that informed the Committee in making that recommendation. It is only important that we have time to look at the report and see who the other applicants were and, why in the opinion of the Committee they decided to recommend one particular person. I cannot understand what the issue is all about. ... view

  • 2 Dec 2021 in Senate: Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir, I want to be heard in silence. I appreciate the sentiments of my good brother, Sen. Sakaja. With tremendous respect, allow me to share my opinion and why I feel it is getting frustrating to sit in this House and watch this House, through its committees, be led from outside. This is the problem that we are facing as a House, where we have the Majority led by the Minority. The Leadership of this House has no time to sit in the Senate, consult and listen to what the backbenchers have to say. With a lot ... view
  • 2 Dec 2021 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Sir, for giving me this opportunity. I want to believe first and precisely that with a lot of respect, Sen. Olekina, you cannot guarantee me Universal Health Care until this law is passed. It is on the basis of providing Universal Health Care to all Kenyans that I support this Bill. view
  • 2 Dec 2021 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, it is on this basis that I am willing and ready, depending on the amounts that will be set by either the Cabinet Secretary or the Board as proposed in the Bill; to contribute to this Fund not because I would have really wanted to, but as a politician and citizen of this county with relatives and friends, the burden of contributing to healthcare or medical bills‘ harambees will come to an end. view
  • 2 Dec 2021 in Senate: That is why I feel mandated and persuaded to support this particular Bill. Just like Sen. Olekina has said, I would want to have a situation whereby anybody who goes to hospital will get equal treatment, equal accommodation and equal respect regardless of their class or the cover that will be there. Considering that word – universal, it must be available to everyone. Those people that are financially endowed can always buy insurance from private insurance providers. view
  • 2 Dec 2021 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I would want to see a situation where public hospitals give the best treatment and care because this is where most of Kenyans go for medical treatment. We go to private hospitals because that is where we think we will get the best. view
