  • 21 Feb 2017 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. I want to take this opportunity to first thank Members of Parliament for saving my life when I had a convulsion. I want to thank them. I want to thank members of staff and also St. Johns Ambulance. More particularly, I want to thank Hon. (Dr.) Pukose because he did a bit of first aid to me before I was rushed to Nairobi Hospital. I want to support the Motion by saying that the solution to the issue of insecurity depends, and so much lies, on us as leaders. Our commitment, as leaders, is ... view
  • 5 Oct 2016 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker for giving me this opportunity to add my voice to this Report. The Committee observes that the KMC had a huge workforce as a result of inefficient use of machinery. view
  • 5 Oct 2016 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, for a long time, the KMC used old machines which could have contributed a lot to the huge workforce as expressed in the Report. The intended workforce, if proper machines were to be utilised by KMC, was to be about 300 compared to the present over 1,000 employees. view
  • 5 Oct 2016 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, the huge workforce was engaged due to the state of the machines. For that workload to be done by the workforce, a huge investment on the use of machines would have been required. view
  • 5 Oct 2016 in National Assembly: I concur with the Committee’s recommendations that the functions in some of these State corporations should be transferred to county governments in line with the Fourth Schedule. The electronic version of the Official Hansard Report is for information purposesonly. A certified version of this Report can be obtained from the Hansard Editor. view
  • 5 Oct 2016 in National Assembly: The KMC, according to me and what has been observed there, is about mismanagement rather than its commercial viability. Government institutions will run smoothly with proper utilisation of the allocated resources. view
  • 5 Oct 2016 in National Assembly: A significant number of regulatory and commercial State corporations continue to depend on the National Treasury. This is very true because huge Government investments have, over time, gone to Recurrent Expenditure. This is mostly in the payment of salaries and allowances to staff. We need value for money in most of these institutions. There is overreliance on the Exchequer. I support the Committee’s observations and recommendations. view
  • 5 Oct 2016 in National Assembly: The non-remittance of statutory deductions is an issue to do with leadership. Leadership of State corporations show lack of seriousness and commitment on the side of the people entrusted with such responsibility. I doubt whether the Government indicates the cost of penalties in the allocations it makes. The negligence we have seen in such institutions even when they delay the remittances, indicates that it is carried out over time. I expect punitive measures to be put in place by the Committee on the inefficiency it has observed in the management of these institutions. This will bring to an end mismanagement ... view
  • 5 Oct 2016 in National Assembly: I like the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology’s requirement on land; that public institutions must have proper registration documents to deter or prevent any land speculators from grabbing institutional land. I expect the same to be done in these State corporations so that we can protect public land from land grabbers. view
  • 5 Oct 2016 in National Assembly: With those few remarks and observations, I support this Report. view
