  • 18 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, in that case, I will urge my friends, hon. Members, who wanted to contribute to kindly bear with me because I only have five minutes. Looking at what has transpired, I have to use the five minutes. I want to start by thanking the Members who have contributed to the amendment of this Motion starting with hon. Lemein who contributed before we amended the Motion. Initially, I had only asked for compensation for crops, but he brought in compesantion for injury and death. I also want to thank hon. Alice Chae for bringing in the ... view
  • 18 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, the only problem with that would be in the rare cases involving animals like crocodiles and hippos that live in water. If you are attacked along rivers, you may not be compensated. However, since the Bill is coming to the House, I am sure this will be an appetizer in it. This morning during the Statements Time, hon. Amina Abdalla brought an answer to a Statement that was sought by Members from Taita Taveta on the issue of marauding elephants in the county. This is not an isolated case. It is good to note that ... view
  • 18 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, I know a Bill is coming to this House, and this Motion, if passed, will not negate the benefits that will be brought by the Bill. In any case, it only acts as an appetizer for the Bill that is coming before this House. So, I urge this House to pass the Motion, so that our farmers and people who neighbour animals can live in peace with the animals we need for the growth of this economy. view
  • 18 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: With those few remarks, I move the Motion. view
  • 17 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: On a point of order, hon. Speaker, Sir. view
  • 17 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Speaker, Sir. This is a House of rules and under these circumstances, I stand under Standing Order No.108(2)(a) to move that hon. Washington Jakoyo Midiwo be suspended from the service of the House because of gross misconduct. Thank you, hon. Speaker. view
  • 5 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you hon. Speaker, Sir, for giving me the opportunity to contribute to this Motion as amended. I have to commend my colleagues from CORD who are in the House because they decided to be in the House with other Kenyans. When the Rome Statute that created ICC came into force in 2002, it was intended to investigate and prosecute four main crimes. The crime of genocide, crimes against humanity, crimes of war and crimes against aggression as amended when it lastly sat in Uganda. The ICC would prosecute those crimes in states that are either unable or unwilling to ... view
  • 5 Sep 2013 in National Assembly: up with the solution that we go to The Hague and not have the prosecutions done in Kenya. I believe that, that was at that particular time because of the circumstances that were pertaining at that time. But since then, Kenyans have had a change of mind, up to and including this particular moment today. They have changed their minds. Hon. Speaker, Sir, since there is no law that is cast in stone, if the ICC wanted the cases to be tried in Kenya at that particular moment, why is it that today, when Kenyans are willing to prosecute those ... view
  • 31 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, I beg to move the following Motion:- THAT, aware that smallholder farmers living in the buffer zone around the Mount Kenya National Park and Forest Reserve have struggled for years with the elephants that regularly invade their land and destroy their crops, which is a costly affair for these smallholder farmers where livelihoods are often lost in a single night raid; concerned that hardly a day goes by without an incident occurring between farmers and the elephants in the area; noting that Elephants from the park easily stray outside its perimeters and cause damage to ... view
  • 30 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Speaker, Sir. I have been very envious of Members who seek Statements in this House and they get answers. Earlier in April, I sought a Statement from the Departmental Committee on Education, Research and Technology. For the last two months, I have just been waiting for answers. The last time I raised the issue was last week, and the Chair of the Committee purported that I was seeking airtime in the House. I believe that I am paid by the taxpayers to speak for my people in this House. I seek your guidance on this matter. I ... view
