  • 12 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. You also forgot to tell Hon. Murugara that he was also my senior. We were in the same school. I appreciate when he speaks nicely here. I was in school with him. I am talking about the former Members of Parliament. One thing I have to mention is that we only appreciate the people who went to Lancaster by word of mouth. We only praise them on view

  • 12 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: the streets that they made the law for us and nothing got into their pockets. The same thing goes for former Members of Parliament. These people are suffering. These people have no healthcare. These people have no food on the table. We need to give them some pension, so that they can have better lives as they age. They can then age gracefully and we can appreciate that they did some good work for this nation. Most of the former Members of Parliament did not retire willingly. Most of them were chased out of Parliament by force, maybe by the ... view
  • 30 Oct 2019 in National Assembly: Hon. Deputy Speaker, I beg to ask the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Government the following Question: (i) What are the steps being taken by the Ministry to stop hawking of harvested tea leaves which have caused increased cases of theft of harvested tea from farmers in Lari Constituency? (ii) What measures is the Ministry undertaking to ensure lasting security with regard to harvested tea leaves in order to protect farmers from losses? This Question is to be replied to before the Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security. view
  • 29 Oct 2019 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. From the outset, I support this Bill because I am a Member of the Committee and was present as we deliberated it. I support the purpose of the Bill because it is providing regulations for processing personal data. We should have regulations for people giving data and subject rights with regard to protection of personal data. We should have regulations on how handling of data is done, by who and where it is stored. I support the Bill because it has taken good care of this part. I also support having a data commissioner. ... view
  • 29 Oct 2019 in National Assembly: The other part that I have looked at in this Bill is on the exemptions that have been given. I have already seen some fireworks in the newspapers. You will find the DCI saying that this Bill will prevent them from fighting corruption and getting information from say, MTN or other mobile service providers. In this Bill, we have provided for the position of a data commissioner who is empowered to prescribe instances where exemptions can be made. If an exemption is to be made, then it is the responsibility of the data commissioner to go and discuss with the ... view
  • 29 Oct 2019 in National Assembly: all the data not knowing what they want to do with it and not knowing that one day their daughters will be called to a beach hotel and then be abused. It is because of the personal data that they collected without the victim’s permission. With all those points, I really wish to support this Data Protection Bill and I hope it becomes law as soon as possible. view
  • 17 Oct 2019 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker for giving me this opportunity to contribute to this Bill. I am now well-versed in this Bill. As I support this Bill, I am more concerned about the 53 per cent that we are sharing out to the two big parties. We are creating two big monopolies which will receive 53 per cent of Kshs4 billion which is more than Kshs2 billion. This will leave all the other parties with very little amounts. It gives a lot of control to the two parties. I propose to the Committee to share out this money. Maybe ... view

  • 17 Oct 2019 in National Assembly: marginalised. Today, we are saying some people in North Eastern are marginalised and Mt. Kenya people are favoured. Over years, you will find that we recruit 10 teachers in a population of 100. That means we have recruited 10 per cent. When we recruit 10 teachers in a population of a million, we have recruited 1 per cent. Over years, it turns out that every youth in a small community has been employed and 90 per cent of the youth in a bigger community in Kakamega or Kiambu counties are still lacking jobs in the name of marginalisation. Who has ... view
