  • 4 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, it is just an intervention and not a point of order. I want to make a humble request. When I look at my watch, we have only 15 minutes remaining--- view
  • 4 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, I was going to propose that you reduce the debating time to a few minutes, so that those who are here can also contribute. view
  • 3 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Thank you, hon. Deputy Speaker. Mine is not to request for a Statement, but to remind the Committee on Education, Research and Technology about a request I made some time back. I know this Committee has had a full in-tray for the last few weeks, but I requested for the Statement four weeks ago. It was on the state of the hardship allowance in a particular area in Chuka/Igambang'ombe Constituency, but to date I have not received a feedback. So, I request the Committee, through you, whether I can get the answer to that request. Thank you, hon. Deputy Speaker. view
  • 3 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Deputy Speaker, I did not mean to interrupt my brother. However, looking at the mood of the House I can see that most hon. Members have view
  • 3 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Deputy Speaker, the rainfall pattern in this country is not erratic. We know the times when we normally expect the rains, but many times it appears that we are caught unawares. Most hon. Members who have spoken before me have dwelt on what they perceive to be areas prone to floods; this is the case with rural areas. I thank my sister, Hon. (Ms.) T.G. Ali because Isiolo is one place which is usually affected. In most urban areas, even Nairobi where we are at the moment, there are areas which are prone to floods. Even the authorities that ... view
  • 3 Jul 2013 in National Assembly: I know of a family in Nairobi that lives in Langata, and because they bought their house they cannot move away; they have double-deckers in their home. They do not sleep on normal beds. Every rainy season, the drainage system blocks and the place is like a river. Every time you approach the City Council of Nairobi, you are always told the same story. It is as if it has to be politicized so that people can be assisted. I want to echo view
  • 26 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: Hon. Deputy Speaker, thank you for the opportunity to contribute to this very important Motion. In the African set-up, the common denominator that equates the rich to the poor is education. Unfortunately, it is not so universal because the circumstances that make children of the poor not to access education in secondary schools are the same as those that make create obscurity to the people who offer funds in the form of bursaries and sponsorships. I believe there are so many sponsors who would be willing to help. A very good example is that whenever we have an issue highlighted ... view
  • 26 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: If you look at the scenario in the villages, the bursaries, especially from the CDF and the Ministry, are normally balloted by a committee. In most cases unless that committee has a database it will not have information on who to give funds. So, what normally happens is that there is a lot of lobbying; that is why my friend from Kitui has said that the funds normally end up in the accounts of children of the rich, who do not actually deserve them. view
  • 26 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: To establish this databank, it is important that we use a system that is foolproof. I believe we can use the chiefs, but if you tell them that you need a databank of kids who are needy, so that you can give them bursaries, most of the times--- I am not saying it is like this everywhere; it is just human nature; sometimes they give the names of their kids or of kids of their friends. We should have a database after mapping out the population in terms of all the sectors. view
  • 26 Jun 2013 in National Assembly: The family profile should be provided, so that we know which families have needy cases. In many cases, the needy kids are normally in the hands of guardians, who, in most cases, are grandmothers, who are left with children when their daughters get married to far places. Sometimes it could be total orphans where the grandmother is in charge, and it is a grandmother who does not have information on where to access the bursaries. In the event that we decide to use only the information that we have in the Dos’ office, then the money does not get to ... view
