  • 16 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. What will extension of time achieve? The Bill has been published and read the First Time. It is now on the Floor of the House for Second Reading. In my view, meeting all the stakeholders would be generating a raft of amendments.

  • 16 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: We are not going to change the law in the Second Reading. You cannot withdraw the Bill and write a new law by the Committee. The Bill should be debated the way it is, but the Committee should come up with amendments. I do not know why we should be stopped from debating this Bill now when the Committee has an opportunity at the Committee of the whole House to submit whatever amendments they generate from meetings with stakeholders. The biggest public participation in Kenya happens here. view
  • 16 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: I agree with you on the fact that what happens here is not public, but we represent the public. The Committee has the Bill before them and anyone with amendments can submit them to the Committee, which would then bring to the House. view

What time are they looking for? If this Bill is so important to them, why are they not prioritising it? Let us go on with the debate. view
  • 14 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. The Constitution is clear. Basic education is a right and the Government should not seek to uphold rights which it cannot pay for. Every responsible Government must adhere to the Constitution of its country. Basic education is a right and if a child has to go to an ECDE centre, it is required by law that he or she goes to school. You cannot tell the child that she must pay for the education which she requires to attend. The ECDE must be free just like primary and secondary education. Those elements of basic ... view
  • 14 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. Looking at the Basic Education Act which he is referring to, it is a total failure. I used to be a BoM member in a school before I became a Member of Parliament and we used to charge Kshs11,000 for a whole year. The Government used to pay the same school Kshs12,000 per child as capitation for free day secondary education. The school is now charging Kshs21,000 because they have created extra charges. If you open this window, you are going to make ECD costly than before levying tuition fees. People are clever and ... view
  • 14 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: What about New Clause 59A and 59 B? Are they not supposed to be dealt with? view
  • 14 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Yes. view
  • 14 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Then I got confused, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. view
