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 May 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, for giving me this opportunity. I rise to support the Motion with amendments. Coming from Turkana County, there is no reason for me not to support this Motion because fishing is our main means of livelihood. Generally, the fishing industry in Kenya creates jobs for the youth. It provides nutritional values to mothers and children and, therefore, reduces child mortality and maternal problems, particularly those connected to health. We know very well that the fishing industry is improving food security not only in the regions where fish is produced but in the whole ... view
  • 22 May 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Speaker, Sir. I would like to appreciate the elaborate Statement given by the Leader of the Majority Party and extend my appreciation to the Deputy President for the extensive work he did for this country. view
  • 22 May 2013 in National Assembly: The clarification I am seeking is whether it is permissible for this House to use inaccurate data, lack of knowledge and improper analysis disguise so as to micro-manage the Executive. view
  • 8 May 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Deputy Speaker, the spirit in this House definitely is that of taking more resources to the counties and I am looking specifically at the Equalization Fund. While I respect and appreciate the parameters and the formula used to allocate resources to counties, I still think Kshs3.5 billion for the Equalization Fund is little looking at the districts that will receive it and the disparities in development between those counties and the rest of Kenya. The Equalization Fund needs to be increased. view

  • 8 May 2013 in National Assembly: Looking at the emergencies, the magnitude and the frequency of emergencies in Kenya, it is alarming and allocating only Kshs5 billion is little. We had money allocated for elections; Kshs17 billion, do we anticipate by-elections or what? That is too much! Some of that money should go to emergencies. Some of that money should also go to the counties. I want to appreciate what hon. Ababu said in quoting the principles of revenue division. Looking at the fiscal capacity, the human resource capacity and the efficiency of counties before the allocation of these funds, the Treasury must ensure that the ... view

  • 7 May 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir. I am Joyce Emanikor, Turkana County. The reason why we have the highest poverty index in Turkana and, maybe, in other ASAL areas is partly attributed to insecurity. The reason why we have low levels of education and high illiteracy rates in Turkana and other parts view
