  • 1 Mar 2017 in Senate: Thank you Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir. I would like to congratulate Sen. Sang for bringing this Petition to the Senate. Research has shown that the Talai community is the longest suffering community in Kenya. We can only compare their suffering to that of the Jews who suffered for many years. Research has shown that during the suffering of the Talai Community, 900 people died and they also lost their leader at that time. We would appreciate if the Government of today could also raise its voice and address some of these injustices. We should appreciate the fact that they are ... view
  • 28 Feb 2017 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir. With the guidance of my able Chairman, Sen. Kagwe and the Deputy Governor, we hope that for the remaining months to the general elections, the people of Nyeri County will see the goodness of devolution. I continue to pray for the people of Nyeri and the family of the late Hon. Nderitu Gachagua, so that they may find peace. May God wipe their tears. Thank you, Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir. view
  • 21 Feb 2017 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Sir. I want to thank you for granting me the opportunity to be a Member of the Parliamentary Network and also serving in the Board of the Parliamentary Network on World Bank and IMF. It is unfortunate that they have left but I would like to bring to your attention that being a Member of the Parliamentary Network--- view
  • 21 Feb 2017 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Sir. This visit has been educational for them and for me too. Yesterday, we managed to meet the Country Director of World Bank who happens to be a woman because we still fight to be on the decision making tables but she is there as the country director of the World Bank. She welcomed us the same way you have welcomed them to the Senate. The previous field visit that the Parliamentary Network took, we went to Indonesia and they were trying to compare Indonesia to Kenya. I must bring back to this Senate that they ... view
  • 28 Dec 2016 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I also add my voice to that of all the other Senators by, first of all, congratulating you for the guidance and the wisdom that you have exhibited today as our leader. I also congratulate other Senators for the courage, wisdom and leadership that they have shown today. We all know a leader knows, goes and shows the way. Therefore, if we are able to show the right direction, all the people who have been watching us today will take the right direction and we will have ourselves to thank for giving the right direction to this ... view
  • 1 Dec 2016 in Senate: Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir, I would like to thank the Chair of the Committee for his answers even though I have a few concerns. In my statement, I had made an observation that this road serves a large community. It serves the Kano people. It is important in their economic livelihoods. From this answer, the Government is aware that Rabuor-Chiga-Kibos Road is in need of repair. What is the Government doing about this road? What are the specific measures that will be taken to ensure that this road is repaired? Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir, from his answer, he said that ... view
  • 1 Dec 2016 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I am confident in the response given by Sen. Obure because he was a former Minister for Roads and knows that a budget of Kshs10 million cannot maintain a road. I hope that the response that he is giving is insinuating that the Committee will actually push into seeing that sufficient funds are allocated for improving this road. view
  • 8 Nov 2016 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I also add my voice in welcoming the students. I am elated to realise that they are girl students coming to volunteer in the Senate. It means that it is a good beginning for them realising that we are struggling to have more women in leadership in the world. For example, today, the Americans are struggling to elect Mrs. Hillary Clinton to presidency. For them to come here, they have began well and are destined for greatness. view
  • 8 Nov 2016 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I want to seek a statement. Should I go ahead? view
  • 8 Nov 2016 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir. Pursuant to Standing Order 45 (2) (b), I wish to seek a statement from the Chairperson of the Standing Committee on Roads and Transportation regarding the status of Rabuor-Chiga-Kibos road in Kisumu County. In the statement, the Chairperson should address the following issues:- (a)Is the Government aware of the deplorable status of the status of Rabuor- Chiga-Kibos Road which gets completely impassable during the rainy season? (b)Could the Central Government upgrade the road from Class D to Class C so that it can attract funding from the National Government considering that the road is the lifeline for ... view
