  • 2 Dec 2015 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. I stand to support the amendment as proposed by the Chairperson of the Committee. One, State corporations have come up with a Mwongozo Code requiring 10 years experience and we are just complying with it. We want to get the best brains to run the Fund. Paragraph (b) of the amendment seeks to introduce tenure of office for the chief executive officer of at least three years renewable. I support. view
  • 2 Dec 2015 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. This is a very straightforward amendment. Project management committees are becoming very important. Therefore, as a Committee, we decided to provide for their appointment, so that business can be done in a stipulated manner. So, instead of loading the Act with so many things, we decided to move this to the regulations. view
  • 2 Dec 2015 in National Assembly: With those remarks, I support. view
  • 2 Dec 2015 in National Assembly: The electronic version of the Official Hansard Report is for information purposesonly. A certified version of this Report can be obtained from the Hansard Editor. view
  • 22 Apr 2015 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Speaker, for giving me this opportunity. At the outset, I want to say that, as a Committee, we have looked at all the evidence that has been provided. We have talked to all those who are concerned with this Petition and we are satisfied that the Petition discloses grounds for removal of people who have been mentioned. Hon. Speaker, immediately we got the Petition, we looked at all matters and because of the gravity of allegations in the Petition, we went back and looked at the Tenth Parliament Report on how these Commissioners were recommended in the ... view
  • 22 Apr 2015 in National Assembly: They have been in office for over two years and yet they have not demonstrated in any way their capability to fight corruption. That one has come out clearly in a letter they wrote to His Excellency the President on 9th September, 2014. In that letter, we found that the Commission which was supposed to be focused in fighting corruption was fighting each another, accusing one another and maligning one another’s name in the media and everywhere. The Petitioner borrowed a lot from that letter which was in public domain and it is his right to do that. We also ... view
  • 22 Apr 2015 in National Assembly: The biggest problem ruining this country is corruption. Even the insecurity that we have has got its root in corruption. Therefore, it is the responsibility of every person in this nation to fight corruption. To fight corruption, we have to remove these Commissioners. With those few remarks, I beg to second this Motion. view

  • 27 Nov 2014 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady for this opportunity. I want to support the amendment. In this amendment we are taking cognizance of the fact that not everybody who is deprived of liberty is a criminal. We have got refugees, persons with disabilities and children. There are many people who are ordinarily not criminals but who are deprived of liberty because of some other issues. We have had cases where a child is put in the same cell with a hard core criminal. Due to delays in the prosecution and so many other things that happen with our police and ... view
  • 27 Nov 2014 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Temporary Deputy Chairlady. The Chairman has put it ably. One thing that is common is that the Cabinet Secretaries, most of the time will not initiate further investigations or programmes. Most of the time, they rely on communication that is given by the people, who are offenders. So, it is important for us to get other avenues to express and canvass this. That is why I support the amendment. On subclause 9, the fine of Kshs200,000 that has been set for somebody who commits that crime is very minimal. Therefore, Kshs500,000 is appropriate for deterrent purposes. I ... view
