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.

  • 9 Mar 2021 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. The great people of Turkana County cannot be left behind in celebrating this extraordinary inordinate achievement. I wish to congratulate you on this. My colleagues have poured many accolades and I do not want to repeat that. However, what really mesmerises and fascinates me about you is your mastery of the law; both Kenyan and international, your neutrality, objectivity and impartiality in handling political issues and even here in the House and most importantly your view

  • 3 Dec 2020 in National Assembly: (Turkana CW), JP): Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. At the outset, because we are talking of the African Continent, I would like to congratulate Hon. Dennitah Ghati for her election as the African Representative to the Commonwealth to represent people with disabilities. Back to the Motion, I support the ratification of the Sixth African Charter, which is on democracy, elections and good governance. Thirteen years down the line, it is long overdue. Kenya already signed, but we need to ratify it as Parliament. I will be very brief because most of the issues I wanted to touch on have ... view
  • 26 Nov 2020 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, at the outset, I wish to support the Report. Since I am a Member of the Committee, I will not go into the detailed recommendations because that has already been articulated by my Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson. When we were investigating the aspects of accountability, austerity and compliance of KEMSA with the Public Finance Management (PFM) Act and the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Act, we realised that they failed that exam because they told us that they did the procurement using the reverse procurement method or the retrospective method where they just called suppliers to bring ... view
  • 26 Nov 2020 in National Assembly: of the pain that we saw these frontline workers facing. We know leaders all over the world have been crying. Even Jesus cried. I know that even Prophet Mohamed – Peace be upon him – also cried severally because of the pain that his people went through. The Exchequer also delayed with the funds, especially the funds that were meant for the counties. When we went out to the counties, we realised that most of the monies had not been spent because it got there towards the end of the financial year. The other thing is that the Kshs500 million ... view
  • 15 Oct 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Deputy Speaker. While I support my colleagues’ sentiments on the unnecessary transfer of performing teachers, I rise on a slightly different, but related matter. view
  • 15 Oct 2020 in National Assembly: A few months ago, we tabled a Petition from Turkana on the TSC policy requiring that during recruitment they only pick graduates of some years back while in some counties like Turkana, and I am sure other northern counties where we have new graduates, and this disadvantages our young graduates who aspire to be teachers but are unable to. We did not get support from the Committee at that time. view
