  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. I rise to request for a Statement regarding the lifting of an embargo and certain issues surrounding title deeds for Kinale Settlement Scheme in Lari Constituency, Kiambu County. Pursuant to Standing Order No.44(2)(c), I wish to request for a Statement from the Chairperson of the Departmental Committee on Lands regarding the lifting of the embargo and settling issues surrounding title deeds for Kinale Settlement Scheme in Lari Constituency, Kiambu County. Kinale Settlement Scheme was established in 1988 through a Presidential Order for settlement of the then Kinale Forest Escarpments Quarters, via Legal Notice No. 10 of ... view
  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: 2. What steps is the relevant Ministry taking to ensure that the 306 missing parcels and the 623 individual missing green cards are found and given to the rightful owners, and by when? 3. When will the relevant Ministry settle and conclude this matter with a lasting solution considering that the conflict between the residents occupying parcels of land and those with illegal title deeds has been persistent for 30 years? 4. What actions are being taken to secure and safeguard public land from being illegally acquired? view
  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: I hereby table the reports. view
  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairman. I also support. I am wondering in the first place, who had brought in that Clause. How do we charge pensioners who have been paying taxes all their time in service? How do we continue milking the old cow? I think it is a very good and wise decision from the Chair, Hon. Limo to remove that Clause. view
  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. I rise to support and congratulate Kenya and our President, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, and the team that saw this through. It is a great achievement. My daughter asked me when I was sitting: view
  • 23 Jun 2020 in National Assembly: , what does it mean to be in the UN Security Council? I was telling her this is a great honour to our country. We have been elevated above so many countries in this world. We have become top of mind of many nations. We will benefit in tourism. We will benefit in decision-making with regard to security. I am not standing here today to only congratulate Kenya and the team that saw this through. I am standing here because I am very concerned about our competitors and the nations that did not vote for us. We are having our ... view
  • 29 Apr 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. I am also concerned about that programme. Last time I requested the Chair to call the current Cabinet Secretary for the National Treasury, Ukur Yattani, who was then the Cabinet Secretary for Labour and Social Protection. The same people who are over 70 years are supposed to have money for medicare with the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) paid through a certain amount of the same money. When the Minister was called, I did not receive a clear answer on why the old people go to hospitals and they are told their cards have not been ... view
  • 20 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, for giving me this opportunity to contribute to this Bill. I am one of those people who come from constituencies which grow quality tea, but we are not earning enough money for many reasons. I do not want to lay all the blame on KTDA because, maybe, we have had a lot of issues with the management. But it is time we think pound-wise, instead of penny-wise. We have been thinking about the small things about KTDA and the small interests they put to run their affairs. Those percentages contribute up-to a maximum of ... view
  • 20 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Government to Government marketing. The Kenya Tea Board’s main role should be marketing our tea worldwide. In England, the white man says they have English tea while they do not produce tea. They import it from Brooke Bond Kenya, package it nicely and call it English Tea. But it comes from Kenya. When that tea is consumed in Europe, it is not Kenyan but English tea. China is the only country that produces, perhaps, ten times what Kenya produces. They market their tea as Chinese tea and it is now consumed worldwide. They have a benefit of having a very ... view
  • 20 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: I want to support this Bill because of the creation of the Board. I insist that I am happy with the nomination of the board members, although I wish that more farmers are nominated to the Board - especially small-scale farmers rather than the plantation farmers. This is because it is the small-scale farmers who have a very huge need to negotiate. Big farmers like Brooke Bond or Finlay can market their tea outside the country as corporates. But small-scale farmers who are taken by KTDA as the umbrella need more representation in the Board. view
