  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Sir, for an opportunity to eulogize Kenya’s best President ever. Shakespeare once said that some men are born great, other men acquire greatness and yet others have greatness thrust upon them. President Mwai Kibaki was not born great. He acquired greatness through sheer hard work and a commitment to patriotism for his country. We can say and identify those upon whom greatness has been thrust and how they have been unable to carry the weight of greatness. At the time, President Mwai Kibaki left the presidency and the leadership of this country, he was the longest ... view
  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: He promised free primary education and within the first two months of his government, Kenyans tasted the sweet cake of free universal primary education. The enrolment in primary schools quadrupled. Children who had been hidden in the villages looking after cattle or working as house servants, all came out and went to school, to the extent that we had a seventy- or eighty-year-old man called Mr. Kimani Maruge, who came out and went to school; he started his primary education. That is how His Excellency the late Mwai Kibaki will be remembered. Mr. Speaker, Sir, the late Mwai Kibaki was ... view
  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: Kenyans, but we also want His Excellency the late Mwai Kibaki to have his space in the history of this country. Mr. Speaker, Sir, nothing can be remembered even more about His Excellency the late Mwai Kibaki than his commitment to the peace and security to this region. It is through His Excellency the late Mwai Kibaki that we created the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) to look after the challenges of peace in Somalia. We created AMISOM and rallied our neighbours. He entrusted me as his Minister of Foreign Affairs, to work with the United Nations (UN) and ... view
  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, President Jakaya Kikwete came here and in 24 hours, we were able to narrow the gap and agree to agree. We had an agreement signed, came to Parliament, altered the Constitution, created the position of the Prime Minister and had the Grand Coalition Government. In fact, some of my colleagues like our team leader, Hon. Martha Karua, did not agree with what we did. She even boycotted the signing of that agreement. At the end of the day, we look back and say that hardliners were wrong, but His Excellency the late Mwai Kibaki was right because ... view
  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: My brother Kalonzo has heard massages here from Sen. Orengo and Sen. (Dr.) Ochillo-Ayacko that he is in a marriage that is forced. Do not get into a forced marriage. You have many options in your life, including but not limited to engaging Kenya view
  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: . We are available to have you because we know what you are and how dedicated and patriotic you are. You do not deserve what you are going through. When you became the Vice-President of President Mwai Kibaki in the most difficult circumstances, you were not interviewed to be given the job. You served for five years. You were Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga’s running mate in the year 2013, 2017 and now it is most appalling---. This, I address to you, Sen. Mutula Kilonzo Jnr., and Sen. Wambua, that your party leader is now being demeaned to go for an ... view
  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: house, there are many rooms and those rooms are available to everybody including him. We need good people including him to work together. Let me finish by touching on one or two things about Kenya Kwanza. When those of you who have opportunity to read, I know that many of us in Parliament are sometimes too busy with too many things, just pick the HANSARD and read the debates of Mzee Kibaki. Pick the HASNSARD and read the debates of the late hon. Martin Shikuku, the late hon. George Anyona, and the late hon. Wamalwa Kijana. You will see that ... view
  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: know when the last Cabinet meeting was held. This is because it is not a secret when a Cabinet meeting is held, it is made public and Kenyans know that the Cabinet met and made resolutions. The Constitution today even obligates that every Cabinet decision must be in writing, signed, sealed and made public. We do not hear of any Cabinet meetings anymore. The country is run by decrees by a couple of a few conspirators and people who do not consult others. This is a big shame. We remember Mzee Kibaki with a lot of nostalgia. May God rest ... view
  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: We celebrate the life of Mzee Kibaki as one like no other. Some men are born great, other men have greatness thrust upon them while others acquire greatness. Mzee Kibaki, through shear hard work acquired greatness. We cannot say the same of others. May God rest Mzee Kibaki’s soul in eternal peace. Thank you. view
  • 26 Apr 2022 in Senate: We shall do it! view
