  • 7 Jun 2018 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Deputy Speaker. I would like to support and commend the Budget and Appropriations Committee. I would also like to acknowledge that as we talk about social protection systems and social interventions, which are intended to cushion the vulnerable in society, it would be good we have a plan that is holistic that does not stop at a pilot stage. view
  • 7 Jun 2018 in National Assembly: The universal healthcare programme is going to be piloted in 12 counties one of which is Kisumu and it would be useful for us to be aware and learn from existing programmes such as The electronic version of the Official Hansard Report is for information purposes only. Acertified version of this Report can be obtained from the Hansard Editor. view
  • 7 Jun 2018 in National Assembly: the orphans and vulnerable children programme, the elderly persons and persons living with disabilities which up to date are at the pilot stage. It is useful in terms of our plans and how we make budgetary projection to be much more focused so that it is done holistically. view
  • 7 Jun 2018 in National Assembly: Counties are going to receive an additional Kshs46 billion than they did in the previous financial year. It is useful to look at the delays in releasing cash to the counties. Most of the counties, as a result of these delays, have been forced to not only rely heavily on revenue collection, but in other cases they have lacked funds for important tasks which include salaries and healthcare. My county, Siaya, is a case in point where some staff have not received their salaries even for February. view
  • 7 Jun 2018 in National Assembly: We also note in the Report of the Committee that during public participation there was specific mention of the need to have extension services. As we look at the Big Four Agenda, particularly food security, it is important for us to recognise that we need to ensure we have necessary veterinary and agricultural production extension services so that we have them in semi-arid areas, which currently do not seem to be able to produce sufficient food and veterinary related productions. view
  • 7 Jun 2018 in National Assembly: I conclude by thanking the Committee and emphasise that we need to reduce the debt level from 57 per cent to 50 per cent and also bring down the external debt. We also need to be much more alert with the high level of corruption and ensure we have clearly defined accountability mechanisms that would allow Committees and the National Assembly, at large, to do the necessary monitoring and evaluation. I thank the Committee. view
  • 7 Jun 2018 in National Assembly: In the interest of the handshake, there are two 001 nominees. I have noted that we assume that we only have one 001 nominee. I have the honour, as I thank my party Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) to also be referred to as Nominee 001. I commend the handshake because it has made this clear. view
  • 7 Jun 2018 in National Assembly: Thank you. view
  • 3 May 2018 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, for giving me an opportunity to contribute to the Motion on the Speech that the President gave yesterday. As a Member of Parliament who has come to Parliament through nomination, I listened carefully yesterday and I was, indeed, happy that we had reached a point in Kenya where the President recognised that where we were as a country required some very specific actions and that he was ready to lead right from the front. view
  • 3 May 2018 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, I want to highlight three key issues that I noted as I listened to the Speech. One is the nature of our politics which has continued to be characterised much more by expression of hatred, name calling and all manner of violence that we have begun to see in the social media. Everybody is displaying not only violence but it seems to be driven by some deep rooted issues. view
