  • 6 May 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. I will say this very quickly. I cannot emphasise enough on the importance of timely surveying of Del Monte land and subsequent renewal of their lease and, very importantly, surrender of unused land to the public for the public and community use. Here, 7,000 direct jobs and 28,000 indirect jobs are at stake, not to mention the Kshs10 billion in forex income. This company will surely wind up its operations in Kenya if something is not done today. According to the NLC recommendation and Gazette Notice No. 1995 dated 1st March 2019, survey of that land ... view
  • 6 May 2020 in National Assembly: for further investigations. What we need now is action. We have everything we need. The survey and lease renewal should have happened yesterday. Kindly, let the CS again present herself in person to explain why this is not happening. I thank you, Hon. Speaker. view
  • 29 Apr 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. I request for a Statement pursuant to Standing Order No.44(2)(c) regarding the status of the application for renewal of land lease for Del Monte Company. Pursuant to Standing Order No.44(2)(c), I wish to request for a Statement from the Chairperson of the Departmental Committee on Lands regarding the status of the application for renewal of the land lease for Del Monte Kenya Limited. Del Monte Kenya Limited is Kenya’s largest producer and exporter of pineapple produce and other fruit beverages, moving an average of 4,000 containers per annum and earning the country over US$90 million in ... view
  • 29 Apr 2020 in National Assembly: of various materials and services, as well as support industries and packaging materials. This further creates employment for almost 28,000 other Kenyans. The land lease for Del Monte Company land expires in 2022 and Del Monte commenced a process of applying for renewal of the land lease in 2012. Regrettably to date, no decision has been made on the same. The delay is negatively affecting the company’s operations, employees, suppliers and other dependents, as well as the livelihoods of thousands of families and hundreds of businesses that rely on the company’s production. It is against this background that I seek ... view

  • 25 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker, for giving me an opportunity to contribute to this Bill. In the formation of the Kenya Tea Board (KTB), the CEO is a very important person. The qualification for this position is that the holder should have a relevant degree. It is very important to sit down and define what that degree is. That is because that is the person who will carry the vision of KTB. If we start on the wrong footing, we will end on the wrong footing. Giving him a term of three years is very short. There is a lot of ... view
  • 25 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: anything to West Africa. Kenya Airways goes to West Africa on a daily basis. What can we do so that we can have a second flight going to West Africa with only cargo? If we can get down to it, we can tap the African market. Remember that after China, Africa is the next biggest growing market. It is good to take note of that. Even as we talk of tea as a commodity, can KTB ensure that we have a buffer fund? Tea is a commodity and you cannot control commodity prices. One time the demand is high and ... view
  • 10 Feb 2020 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker for giving me this time. On my behalf, my family and the people of Thika and Kiambu, I wish to send my message of condolence to the family of President Daniel Toroitich arap Moi. There are two things about him that I will never forget. He was the most generous person. He gave us a bull when I was in Nyeri High School, which we ate for a week. Secondly, against all odds, he stepped out of a very powerful seat and retired honourably. Like any human being, he had his shortcomings. As a country, let ... view
  • 27 Nov 2019 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. I rise to oppose this Report because land has not been digitised for this long. The moment we want to digitise and then we have headwind, we will wait for very long. I am saying this from experience because we have a land registry in Thika. It serves part of Kiambu and part of Murang’a. You meet very many brokers the moment you go to a land registry. Something as simple as land search is such a big issue and it can take even a week or two before you do the land search. ... view
  • 8 Aug 2019 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker. I rise to support this Sectional Properties Bill, 2019. I am very passionate about economic empowerment of our small-scale operators, especially the jua kali artisans. This Bill has come at the right time. If you go to a lot of jua kali artisans today, you find that the person who owns the field calls the shots. A lot of those people acquire those small areas. They are required to register their small sections so that they can run their businesses. You will find that because they are not able to do this, everything they ... view
