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.

  • 23 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: The Constitution Implementation Oversight Committee (CIOC) is also alive to the fact that there were only three Bills that were supposed to be passed within these first three years. One of them is on the county assembly gender balance and diversity as required under Article 197. The other one is on the public participation and county assembly privileges and immunities as required under Article 196. Those two view
  • 2 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. I rise to support this Motion not because Turkana County is prone to flooding, but because it is a necessity for the whole country. Just to cite Turkana, flooding is just one of the disasters that befall that county. Sometimes I wonder what to call the rest of the disasters because droughts are disasters as well. In terms of insecurity, massacres are disasters. There are fires that come with droughts. They are all disasters. I am aware of a pending Bill on a drought management Authority. I tend to think that the “D” should ... view
  • 25 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Deputy Speaker. I rise to support the Motion. I am a Member of that Committee and I am glad to say that the nominees met all the constitutional requirements. We looked at their CVs and they have solid and impeccable academic qualifications. They have rich and vast experience. They are focused and strategic. They have a clean personal record. view
  • 25 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: As my colleagues have earlier said, the three come from pastoralist background. For those who do not know, pastoralists are endowed with great and surpassing intelligence. They are talented, brilliant scholars and professionals. For a long time, this country has done itself a disservice by not engaging these brains. I want to thank His Excellency the President for the appointments that demonstrate inclusiveness and regional balance. He has truly discovered these inherent skills and competencies. These appointments do not only offer Kenya qualified bureaucrats, but they have also stirred excitement and a sense of belonging and patriotism among the pastoralists. view
  • 25 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: Finally, the Ministry of Mining is one of the most, if not the most, underfunded. We want to appreciate the immense work that this Ministry is awaiting and one of which is undertaking an airborne geo-physical survey of the minerals. Therefore, there is need for adequate resources for this Ministry. view
  • 12 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, I stand to support this Motion. It is because the youth form a critical mass of our population. A lot of the things happening in Kenya are done by the youth. They are the nation builders. They are an active and vibrant section of our society. Our youth have untapped immense energy. We witnessed that yesterday when they were being misused in an undignified manner during the protests. It is largely because the youth are idle. In the ASAL areas where we have cattle rustling, raids, highway banditry and so on, all those things thrive because ... view

  • 12 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: nation, development, equity, wealth creation, jobs for the youth, poverty alleviation and posterity, reduced crime, the Jubilee manifesto and dreams, realizing the Vision 2030 and the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs), then there is need to provide a platform for the youth to release their energies. The people of Kenya need to harness and nurture the potential of our youth. There are many organizations in this country which are engaged in the youth agenda. I know that the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has a vibrant section that deals with the youth. It has been working with the then Ministry of ... view
