  • 31 Mar 2020 in Senate: Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Sir, for giving me an opportunity to make my remarks on this important matter. I want to go straight to the issues of quarantine and curfew. Without debating the illegality or legality of the curfew, which is in court, it is not possible to have a one-fit-all solution. A curfew that is applicable in Nairobi is not applicable in Mandera or Migori, where we have poor widows who are looking after their families. They sell fish that is only purchased between 6.00 p.m. and 9.00 p.m. They do not have savings or anything to eat, yet ... view
  • 31 Mar 2020 in Senate: The electronic version of the Senate Hansard Report is for information purposesonly. A certified version of this Report can be obtained from the Hansard Editor, Senate. view
  • 31 Mar 2020 in Senate: Mr. Speaker Sir, because of time, I laud you and your team for returning Kshs200 million to the National Treasury for use in the fight against the Coronavirus Disease. However, I have a modification that I want to suggest. Let us divide that money among counties. I expect Kshs4 million for my county. This money can be used in every county to do useful things. I am sure that the person running the national show will only see what he is able to see, and it will probably be in Nairobi, Makueni, Bungoma and yet other counties also deserve a ... view
  • 17 Mar 2020 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I have an amendment to this Motion. Kindly allow me to move it. Mr. Speaker, Sir, I beg to move the following amendment to the Motion– That the Motion be amended by deleting Paragraph (a) and substituting therefore with the following new paragraph– Adjourn its Plenary sitting today, 17th March, 2020, for two weeks so as to reconvene on Tuesday, 31st March, 2020, and, thereafter, hold one sitting in each week. In my view, this is the compromise which is important. I believe that we need two weeks to put in place systems that would protect MPs ... view
  • 17 Mar 2020 in Senate: I propose that we meet once a week with the responsible people in Government to tell us the status of the spread and the measures being taken to deal with it. We will also give them feedback as to the status of the safety of our constituents. It is important to ensure that we meet once a week so that we receive official information from the Government. It is sad that the Government is addressing us through the press that in its usual distortion shares with us such information. I am not comfortable citing to my people information in the ... view

  • 17 Mar 2020 in Senate: Mr. Speaker, Sir, I believe I have every right to move and Members have every right to vote for this amendment. If you do not scare Members, the Motion will be defeated. Members cannot retreat and hide from the people they lead. Members must transparently and honestly share information with the people they lead. If you have some information and you are not sharing with Members, the more reason Members become suspicious. This Motion is very important in that we are not ordinary people. We are not a gathering like some Members are saying here. We are the third arm ... view
  • 17 Mar 2020 in Senate: I believe the Parliamentary Service Commission has no right to shut Parliament down. It is not their mandate. If they try, they can be impeached. It is not proper for us to get information that we can be shut down by the Parliamentary Service Commission. We should make a decision that is sensible. I believe this is a comprise rather than defeating the request for adjournment. We are supporting the Senate Majority Leader to help us achieve a compromise but also allow us to be leaders and not cowards or people who hide under our beds and receive information from ... view
  • 17 Mar 2020 in Senate: It is a point of information, if he would permit. view
