  • 9 Jun 2017 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, the concern was on the presentation by Sen. (Dr.) Machage alluding to the fact that they want to make an amendment on a Bill which was accepted through mediation. Variation, be it a letter, word or comma may reshape the agreement. That is why we are waiting for your guidance; whether Sen. (Dr.) Machage is in order to move an amendment on a Motion while presenting a Bill. view
  • 6 Apr 2017 in Senate: Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir, as far as I sympathise with the petitioner, he has a constitutional right to petition the Senate. However, the hopelessness and despondency among Kenyans contracted to work in counties and the national Government is alarming. The Governor of Machakos has been running around the country with a party with a funny name but he has a pending bill of Ksh4billion--- view
  • 6 Apr 2017 in Senate: Mr Deputy Speaker, Sir, to me, it is funny--- view
  • 6 Apr 2017 in Senate: Mr Deputy Speaker, Sir, I withdraw and apologise. Allow me to continue. The same Governor of Machakos--- view
  • 6 Apr 2017 in Senate: Mr. Deputy Speaker, Sir, there is a lot of relevance to run a party and run around the country for a governor who wants Ksh1.6million. I am bringing an analogy in the sense that this governor who owes contractors Ksh4billion and has come up with a party of --- with all due respect I apologise. The name of the party has escaped me. He cannot even pay a small contractor Ksh700,000. Secondly, yesterday, we were interrogating a very big issue concerning petitions. The Bungoma County owes Kshs2billion. The Governor of Bungoma transferred Ksh314million to a private account. The petition took ... view
  • 5 Apr 2017 in Senate: Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir, when I was at the Lounge, I saw youth leaders from Kakamega being welcomed. Students from Kabianga University are welcome and they should pick the best from this House. As we move to the august elections, they need to interrogate both the failing Jubilee Regime and the Opposition which in many cases has also failed in many years. There is a new order and new dispensation. Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir, I speak as a leader and I will be going to their domains to tell them that I am the best thing for Kenya. I thank ... view
  • 30 Mar 2017 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir, for giving me this opportunity to air my views on the Presidential Speech which was read a couple of days ago. You are aware that I did not participate in that Joint Sitting after going through several Presidential Addresses. After listening to the issues raised by the President, I was vindicated. For the last four years, Kenyans have waited in bated breath for the Jubilee regime, headed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, to tackle issues which are fundamental and basic to their lives. For example, water, food and medical care. When I listened on the ... view
  • 30 Mar 2017 in Senate: On a point of order, Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir. I seek your guidance, considering that we have gone through the order on Statements. Traditionally, the Senate Majority Leader, his Deputy or any Member designated should be available to issue a statement on the business of the Senate for the coming week. I need your guidance whether we will be proceeding without that statement. view
  • 30 Mar 2017 in Senate: Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir, I am referring to Standing Order No.1, traditions of this House and precedents. Traditionally, the Senate must be prepared on the business of the subsequent week. That has been the tradition for many years. Once or twice it has raised acrimony in this House whereby we got directions on the same. Today is the last sitting of the week. If that is escaped, then we will be proceeding with business that has not been deliberated by the Senate Business Committee (SBC) and the time allocated. view
  • 30 Mar 2017 in Senate: On a point of order, Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir. First, I was among the first Senators in the House. Secondly, you gave a ruling which did not have timelines to the Serjeant-at-Arms to go and seek the Senate Majority Leader and his Deputy who have abrogated their roles. Mr. Temporary Speaker, Sir, you did not give timelines and as a matter of procedure and traditions, we cannot skip an item which is very crucial. I expected you to give timelines to the people who have abrogated their roles to be sought. That is why I got concerned and spoke about ... view
