  • 6 Sep 2012 in National Assembly: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I am the Member for Starehe. view
  • 6 Sep 2012 in National Assembly: Mr. Speaker I join my colleagues in saying that whoever took this matter to the media, claiming that Members of Parliament were bribed with as little as Kshs30,000, whoever it is, it is a real joke. This is an insult to all of us as men and women of integrity and as people, for example, I am a Bishop and when somebody talks about bribing, unless one brings an offering to the church, I would not even accept your money for whatsoever reason. When you bring it to the church, you put it to the offering basket. You do not ... view
  • 20 Jun 2012 in National Assembly: Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, from the onset, I want to make myself very clear that I stand to oppose this Bill. I have several reasons why I stand to oppose the Traffic Amendment Bill. One of the reasons is that as much as I do accept that we need a law that must put order in the traffic sector and among road users, in the way we relate with each other, when we are on the roads and that we will bring down the rate of accidents in this country, when I read through this Bill, this is not ... view
  • 20 Jun 2012 in National Assembly: Another impractical provision is the one on road blocks. I appreciate that we cannot have road blocks everywhere. But I oppose one thing, that we can only have road blocks at designated areas. It is not practical. What happens today, if the police in Nakuru call the police in Nairobi and say; “we have three vehicles on the highway coming towards Nairobi or Naivasha or somewhere and they have robbed or done some crime in Nakuru, please put road blocks and arrest them? What will the police in Naivasha or Nairobi say? We cannot put road blocks because this is ... view
  • 20 Jun 2012 in National Assembly: Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, coming to the uniforms for the matatu driver, I do accept that they need some order. But we cannot come to an extent where we define their colours. Probably we need to propose uniforms like we do for schools but then we leave it for the investors in that sector to decide what kind of colours their particular staff will wear. But we cannot start defining what colour the uniforms will be. That is not part of legislation. That is a function and we can leave the functions to the investors. The bottom line - ... view
  • 15 Feb 2012 in National Assembly: Thank you, Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir. I rise to support this very important Motion. I want to thank the hon. Member, Maina Kamau, for bringing it to the Floor of this House. Considering the backlog that we have currently in the education system because of lack of a huge intake within our universities, we have ended up with very many students going for regular programmes. However, that poses a question for all of us. For how long can we sustain the regular programmes? My answer would be, not for too long, for the fact that regular programmes are very ... view
  • 15 Feb 2012 in National Assembly: I would like to support this Motion and really encourage ourselves to be able to facilitate our universities. One of the hon. Member has already said, even within the six existing public universities, there is already enough space for expansion of university education in this country. We just need to reorganize and adequately fund them. We can reduce on the regular programmes and channel our funds to parallel programmes. view
  • 15 Feb 2012 in National Assembly: Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, it is obvious that we have a problem with our youth in this country. They drop out of school at a certain level. They embark on Jua Kali jobs which does not produce skilled labour. Therefore, we end up with a lot of our youth without skilled labour. If we need to impart proper skills on our youth, we definitely have to offer more parallel programmes than we are doing at the moment. Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, there is a great aspiration within our people. They no longer believe that after secondary education that ... view
  • 15 Feb 2012 in National Assembly: Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, finally, we are talking about the space and expansion of university education in this country. One of the hon. Members here has said our universities have large tracts of land. We pride in this. For example, when Kenyatta University was constructing the modern library, they used some of its space. That library has now added value to them. I believe our Government can facilitate our universities in their expansion mission. Space or land is not an issue at all. Many students from the marginalised areas would like to pursue university education. So, if we do ... view
  • 20 Dec 2011 in National Assembly: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I will do so. view
