Joyce Akai Emanikor

Joyce was born in abject poverty. In 2012, she suspended her PhD studies to concentrate. In 1985-1996 she participated in the translation of the bible to Turkana language. Previously, Joyce worked with the United Nations Children and Oxfam Kenya and was actively involved with the community. She puts education empowerment on top of her list in her quest to transform Turkana County. She also believes that without security, there cannot be any development and therefore has been very vocal on issues of security in her parliamentary debates.

  • 26 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: Yes. Hon. Speaker, I think a number of us are in the same dilemma of delayed responses to our requests for statements. I asked a statement on the delayed construction of Lodwar High Court about five months ago and the response was to come from the Judicial Service Commission (JSC). I have been to the Table Office severally just to check for the written response. I thank you, Hon. Speaker. view

  • 20 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, I beg to move that the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (Amendment) Bill (National Assembly Bill No. 33 of 2019) be now read a Second Time. view
  • 20 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: The principal object of this Bill is to enhance disaster risk reduction (DRR) in learning institutions. The school curricula do not provide the learners with education on safety, particularly on how to conduct security drills, evacuation, first aid, how to locate explosives, how to sense danger, among other safety-related teachings. view
  • 20 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: The impact of insecurity, disasters and hazards on education presents weighty challenges that require urgent action. We have had our schools and universities being bombed, shelled and burnt. We have had children, students, teachers and academicians being killed, maimed, abducted or arbitrarily detained. We have had buildings collapsing and killing students. Such occurrences expose students and education personnel to harm, deny a large number of children and students their right to education and so, deprive communities of the foundations on which to build their future. Those incidences destroy not only school infrastructure, but also hopes and ambitions of a whole ... view
  • 20 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (Amendment) Bill, 2019 is informed and premised upon the recent and current wake of terror attacks, active shooting incidents, bombings, sexual assault, kidnappings, radicalisation, natural hazards and other forms of disasters in our institutions of learning, particularly the secondary and tertiary institutions. 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
  • 20 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: Cognisant of the fact that these disasters in schools will no doubt continue to pose a problem, the Bill, therefore, is a response to the need for disaster preparedness and disaster risk reduction. Security and safety threats in institutions of learning come in various forms from external aggressors in form of terror attacks, active shooter situations or raids. Secondly, by internal aggressors, for instance, the fires by students, sexual assault and bullying and, finally, natural and man-made disasters such as collapsed buildings, floods, landslides, earthquakes, earth tremors, lightning and storms. Either way, there is physical, emotional and psychological injury, loss ... view
  • 20 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: Just to randomly name but a few of the incidents in Kenya, on 2nd April 2015, gunmen stormed Garissa University College killing 148 people and injuring 100. The 1998 Bombolulu fire tragedy that left 26 girls dead in Kwale County is still vivid in our minds 20 years down the line. In 2001, fire killed at least 59 male teenagers in Kyanguli Secondary School in Machakos and injured scores of them. In 2010, two boys were burnt to death in their dormitory in Endarasha Boys Secondary School in Nyeri County. In August 2012, eight pupils of Asumbi Boarding Primary School, ... view
  • 20 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: examine disaster preparedness policies in schools to evaluate disaster awareness in the school environment with a view to establishing measures to enhance disaster preparedness and risk reduction. Security and safety threats in institutions of learning are a global phenomenon that has resulted in reforms and law amendments in some jurisdictions. In 2014, the Peshawar School Massacre by the Taliban in Pakistan which killed over 141 people resulted in a new law. The 2004 Beslan School Siege in Russia that killed 385 people resulted in a series of Federal Government’s reforms. Globally, concepts and ideas on security of children are deliberated ... view
  • 20 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: (Turkana (CWR), JP): Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. I want to be generous and donate two minutes to my colleague because I do not have much to say. view
